If you're a developer or system administrator lured to Mac OS X because of its Unix roots, you'll quickly discover that performing Unix tasks on a Mac is different than what you're accustomed to. Mac OS X for Unix Geeks serves as a bridge between Apple's Darwin OS and the more traditional Unix systems. This clear, concise guide gives you a tour of Mac OS X's Unix shell in both Leopard and Tiger, and helps you find the facilities that replace or correspond to standard Unix utilities. You'll learn how to perform common Unix tasks in Mac OS X, such as using Directory Services instead of the standard Unix /etc/passwd and /etc/group, and you'll be able to compile code, link to libraries, and port Unix software using either Leopard and Tiger. This book teaches you to: Navigate the Terminal and understand how it differs from an xterm Use Open Directory (LDAP) and NetInfo as well as Directory Services Compile your code with GCC 4 Port Unix programs to Mac OS X with Fink Use MacPorts to install free/open source software Search through metadata with Spotlight's command-line utilities Build the Darwin kernel And there's much more. Mac OS X for Unix Geeks is the ideal survival guide to tame the Unix side of Leopard and Tiger. If you're a Unix geek with an interest in Mac OS X, you'll soon find that this book is invaluable.… (meer)

Mac OS X For Unix Geeks 4th Edition provides an overview of the "Leopard" (10.5) version of the Mac OS X operating system. It is divided into four sections covering day-to-day use, developing software for the Mac, dealing with various package management systems (ports, fink, etc), and using Mac OS X as a server. The first two sections are particularly good at providing an overview of their topics along with many references to online resources for further information. The package management section was interesting, but less illuminating as there is not really much to learn if you are familiar with the tools. The final section is the weakest in the book: you could probably write a whole book on how to run Mac OS as a serve and this section feels very rushed.

Books covering specific software packages suffer from two problems: pallid regurgitation or online reference material, and rapid obsolescence.

Mac OS X For Unix Geeks avoids the first problem by way of its unifying theme: what does Mac OS X look like to a UNIX geek? The authors do a very good job of relating how Mac OS X differs from other UNIX variants in both technical detail (for example, differences in handling dynamic libraries) and in user workflows (for example, using the Terminal to fire off an SSH connection over Bonjour rather than just using ssh).

There is not too much that an author can do regarding obsolescence. Already a new version of Mac OS X is available (Snow Leopard). However many of the topic in this book will be relatively stable with that release and so this book is still worth a look at least until O'Reilly comes up with a new edition. ( )
