Mac OS X: Not Just A Pretty Face

The MacDevCenter recently published a 3 part series on the Tiger Terminal. I'm always surprised by how many of my fellow Mac friends never go near the dark and scary place known as the Terminal but O'Reilly has done a decent job of holding your hand and introducing you to some of the capabilities made possible in the Terminal. Definitely recommended reading if you are even the slightest bit curious about some of the power your Mac really possesses.

OS X revolutionized the Mac by building an elegant GUI over a BSD kernel. Most users didn't much care about the inherent security and stability of the UNIX foundation, but experienced UNIX users recognized the power underneath the Aqua interface. This article will introduce you to some of the power the built-in Terminal app and command-line interface (CLI) can unleash for Tiger users.
