Macworld's 'Total OS X' issue available Reviews
While on our weekly grocery run this evening, I was surprised to see Macworld's Total OS X special issue on the magazine rack. Surprised because I didn't think it was out yet, and surprised because our grocery store doesn't normally carry Macworld!

This $9.95 package includes a 120+ page 'OS X only' version of the magazine which includes an overview of OS X, a "Where did feature XYZ from OS 9 go?" write up, and articles on network security, AppleScript, web serving, and more. The package also includes a booklet with 50 top Mac OS X Tips an UNIX Tricks, culled from the magazine and O'Reilly's 'Learning Unix for Mac OS X'. There are also two CD's packed full of goodies, including a visual tour of OS X, a collection of product demos (Illustrator, After Effects, etc.), 250mb of shareware, 300mb of sponsored demos, and a product guide with over 2,500 OS X products.

All in all, I was quite impressed with the content of this special issue. Between the magazine and the booklet, there are a number of good tips for using and optimizing OS X (I learned quite a few new tidbits while reading!).

In the interest of full disclosure, I need to mention that my 'OS X Solutions Guidebook' is included on the CDs. However, I am not receiving any compensation for either the inclusion of the Guidebook or this hint (heck, they didn't even tell me the issue had gone to press!). I just think Macworld did a good job with this issue, and many OS X users may find it useful, especially those who are just coming over from OS 9.

I bought my copy the Friday before Easter as they stocked the magazine rack with them. I was at first disappointed with the package because it is simply reprints of old articles from MacWorld and O'reilly. HOWEVER, all of these articles have been rewritten to include up-to-date information or corrections to tips making them easier than they had been before, as well as new previously unpublished tips.

It is a good buy and I highly recommend it!
