  1. mac osx in a nutshell 😀 am taking that one this time 😀

  2. It’s a relatively old book covering Panther I think. It’s somewhat outdated… but an interesting read nonetheless…

  3. thank you Avinash for the great initiative of freedom of choice…long Live Linux

  4. 😀 maybe old.. but i’ve not nothing else on mac yet… this would get me a foothold atleast on a few basic things about how the things are fitted around in osx… actually, am looking for something more osx internals [as in os stuffs] .. i feel really bad having just a mere grasp of just a few thing on osx when i am using it everyday

  5. 😀 if you do have a cooler books and is willing to lend me it for some days 😀 that would be coool 😀

  6. As a matter of fact, I do have a few *extremely cool* books on Mac OS X 🙂

  7. 😀 and…. are you willing to lend or atleast give some titles [if ever the book is really worth it… am buying it :D]

  8. I have “Brilliant Mac OSX Leopard: What You Need to Know and How to Do It.” It is a book for beginners but it’s nicely written and beautifully typeset (à la Apple.)

    I also have “Mac OS X Internals: A Systems Approach” which is an enormous book about Darwin et al. It does not cover Cocoa, Quicktime, etc. In essence, it an a Systems Software book (if you see what I mean.)

    I also have “Cocoa(R) Programming for Mac(R) OS X (2nd Edition)” which is a book about programming in Objective-C 1.0 which has since been superseded by Objective-C 2.0 (which has garbage collection for example.)

    Tell me which one you would like to read.
