Part III : Networks and Internet > Network Administration

Chapter 13. Network Administration

As stated in the previous chapter, Mac OS X deserves an award for being the “best connected” out-of-the-box operating system. It owes much of its connectability to its Unix underpinnings—and while plenty of Unix-like operating systems exist, they can’t match the traditional expertise in usability and graphical user interface design that Mac OS X offers.

However, Mac OS X requires more system administration than previous versions of the Mac OS did.
