Amazon.com Review

Apple has a way of creating and nurturing intense enthusiasmamong users, and not since the switch to the PowerPC architecture haveApple loyalists been as excited as they are now with the release of MacOS X, the long-awaited, wholly new operating system for theMacintosh.

History lesson
Actually, "wholly new" isn't entirely true. Mac OS X is built on thefoundation and architecture laid by the late NeXT Computer, Inc., inits NeXTSTEP operating system. Users familiar with NeXTSTEP (there areat least three of us) will see many familiar features in OS X, such asthe spinning rainbow ball, NetInfo, and dot-app folder packages, butthere is a lot of new ground here, too.

Mac OS X essentially takes the best of NeXTSTEP (the Unix core, NetInfounderpinnings, OS Services, Objective C, etc.) and goes even further,making it Macintosh. On the surface of OS X, we have fancy new windowsand a new desktop (the Aqua interface), new file open/save dialogboxes, new menus... but these are just the fancy interface features.The real strength is under the hood. Think of it as having the power,strength, and flexibility of Unix, but with the ease of use ofMacintosh.

Who should (and shouldn't) upgrade?
Who should upgrade to Mac OS X? The answer is both simple and complex:everybody with a blue and white G3 and later Macintosh, especiallythose with a dual-processor G4, will benefit from the new OS. That'sthe short answer.

The long answer is this: If you use your Mac on a daily basis to earnyour living, you won't be able to use Mac OS X for everything, becausethe chances are good that as of this writing (late March, 2001), theapplications you use most aren't fully compatible with OS X. Adobe,Macromedia, Quark, and others have all promised OS X versions of theirflagship apps, but none are yet shipping.

The good news is that it's fairly easy to set up your system to startup using either Mac OS X or OS 9.1, and, in many cases, you can run MacOS X and still run your legacy application, thanks to Mac OS X'sClassic mode. Be careful doing this--not all applications are happywhen running under Classic mode, and some features might not work. Fornow, you'll just have to try them and see.

There are still some things to be ironed out, too. Wacom, the tabletmanufacturer, has yet to release a driver for Mac OS X. The company'sWeb site says a driver will be out by summer, but for now the tablet isuseless under Mac OS X. Also, only USB printers work, and only somedrivers are available. Ditto for scanners. SCSI support isn't allthere, either (rendering our Zip and Jaz drives useless under OS X).USB Zip drives should work, though.

So, why upgrade?
For starters, when you buy Mac OS X, you get three CDs in the box: theMac OS X CD, a Mac OS 9.1 CD, and the Mac OS X Developer's Tools CD.Most end users won't be interested in the Developer's CD, but there areprobably quite a few people interested in learning how to program butwho don't know where to start. Programming under Mac OS X is a realpleasure, and giving away the tools to create great applications is aterrific idea. We can't wait to see what the shareware market will looklike one year from now.

Many users who haven't already upgraded to Mac OS 9.1 should look atthis upgrade from a different perspective: it's an upgrade to OS 9.1,but you also get Mac OS X bundled with it.

OS X has some pretty attractive features, making it worth the learningcurve:

  • Protected memory. In short, if an application crashes, the wholesystem doesn't go down with it.
  • Improved multiprocessor support. If you've got a dual-processor G4,you want Mac OS X and as many OS X applications as you can get. Makethose two little CPUs earn their keep!
  • Improved multitasking. Running multiple applications at once is nowcause for celebration, not a coffee break.
  • Improved networking. Internet and intranet networking are nowsupported at a core level, making them faster and more reliable.
  • Support for large disks, large amounts of RAM, and more than twoprocessors. So you think a dual G4 is fast? Expect to see a quad G4soon.
  • And if the above tangible technical reasons aren't enough, do itjust for the interface. The customizable dock, windows, icons, andtranslucent menus are just beautiful, and the integration of words,pictures, music, and movies is seamless.

Upgrade now. Boot up into Mac OS 9.1 90 percent of the time and theremaining 10 percent use Mac OS X. Learn the interface and nuances ofthe new features. As more native Mac OS X applications (i.e., the onesyou need) become available in the coming months, watch the 90/10percentage swing toward 10/90. Before you know it, you won't be able toremember the last time you started up OS 9.1, and you'll hate it whenyou do. --Mike Caputo ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars You're On Your Own
The power and capabilities of this industry standard audio production application are awesome. Its versatility and potential for a multitude of recording and compositional projects is exciting and inspiring. And its notorious reputation for a steep learning curve ..... well earned.

What used to exist in four versions (Logic Audio, Silver, Gold & Platinum in ascending order) has been simplified to two; Logic Pro and Logic Express. And that's the only thing simple about it. I'm not sure of the Pro version (out of my affordability range at the moment), but this package has the feel of being somewhat rushed to market; there are no tutorials to speak of included on any of the five discs in the box, nor will you find any "guided tour" on any of the printed materials. On the documentation disc is a 496-page PDF you can print out, and at the time of this writing, that is the only publication you will find anywhere that specifically covers Logic Express ..... and it is a reference guide. Not exactly accommodating of Apple/Emagic to just toss purchasers of their software into the deep end like this and just let them flounder. On the other hand, releasing it this way may give the more determined of us that much more of a competitive edge .....

Missing guidance aside, I do not regret this purchase. With a little help from the Apple Pro Training title on Logic 6 (available separately), I've managed to figure out enough of the basics to know how to approach projects. It includes three virtual software tools ("analog" synth, sampler, rhythm machine), ten or so effects plug-ins, as many midi and sample editing options as you'll probably need, a scoring module you can actually print out sheet music from, and if you already have another music creation app like Reason or Garageband, you'll be pretty much set up with your own desktop recording studio. The main caveat I must pass along with this package is, you may save money, but you have your work cut out for you. Good luck. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

iLife provides four multimedia applications in one package: iTunes for managing music, iPhoto for digital photography, iMovie for editing digital video, and iDVD for creating your own DVDs. They are all integrated so that they work together seamlessly.

Play, download, import, and do more with Apple’s premiere digital music player iTunes 3. It gives you instant access to your music library and playlists from within the other applications in iLife, just as they are in iTunes. And you can quickly sample your music too--a play button is included so you won’t have to launch iTunes just to find that perfect track. Do more with your digital photos with iPhoto 2. Organize, edit, share, and even set photos to music. Use the Retouch wand tool to make blemishes disappear like magic. And get access to your photo albums directly from iMovie and iDVD, and bring in music for your slideshows from iTunes.

The latest version of the digital video software that helped Mac users create a million movies, iMovie 3 brings several new features to your screens, including Skywalker Sound Effects and visual effects like Lens Flare, Fairy Dust, Earthquake, and the Ken Burns Pan and Zoom Effect.If you have an Apple SuperDrive, you’ll want to take advantage of all that iDVD 3 has to offer. Create DVDs with chapter markers, search your iTunes library and find music for your projects, and create instant DVD slideshows by selecting your iPhoto album, with dozens of new Hollywood-style themes to choose from. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Collection
This is a collection of iTunes 3, iPhoto 2, iMovie 3, and iDVD 3 that Apple offers on all their latest machines with Superdrive installed. All but iDVD 3 are available as downloads from the Apple website, but it is worth the $...or whatever to get them altogether and include the iDVD 3. The iDVD 3 is not available as a download because of its size (>1.3 gig) Each of the four programs is good, but the seamless combination of the four (five including iPod) makes this system an easy to learn combination. After looking for almost a year and a half at different software/hardware combinations for editing and converting (to digital for DVD), I decided on the Mac and the iLife package. There are certainly more powerful individual programs available on both the PC and Mac platforms, but this combination beats everything else that I looked at for ease of use and simplicity in learning. I am very pleased with my decision.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth four times the price
Where to start to talk about how amazing the latest offering is from Apple for the Macintosh? Let's take it one step at a time.

iMovie 3: Apple took their already great DV editing program and added so many new features it's almost mind boggling! Drag and drop from your iPhoto photo library. Drag and drop from your iTunes music library. Granted, you were able to do these things before in a somewhat clumsy way through the "import" command, but this makes it beyond easy. Chapter support (The ability to break up longer videos on DVD's to easily skip back and forth) for iDVD. Individual volume control for each audio track at any point in the track. One click access for all three of the other iApps. New titles, new transitions, the "Ken Burns" effect with stills. No other DV software available for ANY platform is as easy to use as this. Also if you download from Apple it's FREE!

iPhoto: Still mostly looks the same, but there is now support for the other digital lifestyle iApps built in. The "Retouch" editing feature works amazing well. Also if you download it from Apple it's FREE! If your into serious photo editing, you'll still want a companion program. Photoshop Elements is a good choice. 70% of Photoshop at 1/5 of the price.

iTunes: I honestly don't see much difference here. I'm sure changes were made to integrate it with the other iApps. Still a great program though. If you download it from Apple (deja vu) it's FREE!

iDVD: Some new themes, some new features make this a worthy addition to any SuperDrive equipped Mac. No other DVD authoring software I've seen is as easy to use and as intuitive as iDVD. AND if you download it from Apple it's....um....not available. iDVD can only be purchased as part of the iLife package AND then only installed if you have a Superdrive equipped (internal drive only and as far as I know ONLY if installed by Apple) G4 PowerMac.

Complaints: Yeah a few. iMovie crashed a few times while performing multiple operations (granted it was doing 4 "Ken Burns" and 5 transitions at the time) on my 933 SuperDrive G4 Quicksilver Tower. Also the Apple restricts iDVD to only those people who bought their SuperDrive equipped G4 computers. C'mon Apple! We bought the hardware. Let us configure it ourselves without penalties! Also, you must be running at least 10.1.5 or later (10.2 HIGHLY recommended). System 9 users are officially out in the cold for this product.

In conclusion: If you meet the hardware/software specs, this is a must buy! No SuperDrive? Find a fast online connection and download the other pieces.

5-0 out of 5 stars iLife puts it all together!
If you're on a Mac, you've probably used at least one of these programs by now. If not, you're missing out on what Steve Jobs calls "The hub of your digital lifestyle."

iMovie - For the amatuer film maker, or somebody who just wants to edit their own home movies, this is a cakewalk. Once you connect your camera through a Firewire port, you import your video. Add titles. Add fades, transitions, etc... Add some background music. Then, download it back to your camera (or, with a bridge, to a VCR). Better yet, save it out and import the video to iDVD for burning.

iDVD - I can't begin to tell you how easy this is. Create a menu (or select one of the many theme menus). Import your video. Click burn to DVD. It is literally that easy. I made a DVD of our improv troupe for all the members' Christmas gifts.

iTunes - If it's a music file... mp3, aiff, wav... it can import to iTunes. Create a music CD. Burn it as a standard or mp3 CD with a single click.

iPhoto - You can set this up to open and import the images as soon as your camera mounts to the desktop. Organize the images. Edit them for color or size. Then, burn a CD, make a slideshow, or even order a personalized bound book with your images and text.

The one major flaw of these programs has been the lack of manuals (except through third parties). A small price to pay for this kind of quality. Also, if you have no need for iDVD, the other three are available for download from the Apple web site. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Crashes constantly
This is a huge step back for Apple's iApps, particularly iPhoto, which is an absolute disaster in this release. We typically cannot launch iPhoto without crashing unless we trash three catalog files. Importing more than once a day is impossible - the app says it cannot access .../iPhoto Library/month/date the second time you try to import.

Add to that the continued game of keep-away with iDVD, which will not work with external DVD burners. If you bought anything less than the highest-end Macs, or models like the Cube or iBook that have never had built-in DVD burners as an option, well, too darn bad! Kind of obviates the coolness of FireWire when peripherals are deliberately not supported by Apple.

Crashing and losing user data is NEVER acceptable. Apple, more than anyone, is supposed to know this. The company should be absolutely ashamed of this pathetic product, and should not offer it for sale until they work out the bugs and stop being such jerks about DVD burning.

2-0 out of 5 stars great product but lousy license
The the 10.3 Family Pack and the iLife Family Pack license have exactly the same language -

"as long as those computers are located in the same household and used by persons who occupy that same household".

For those who respect intellectual property and read their licenses carefully, this means that the 10.3 Family Pack cannot be installed on a Powerbook which then is taken outside the same household nor on another Mac located at another of your personal residences. Apple has confirmed that this is the correct interpretation of their license language.

All Apple had to do with both Family Pack licenses is change "located in the same household and used by" to"located in the same household OR used by".

Unfortunately the lawyers cannot seem to agree with that simple change so don't waste your money on the Family Pack unless you can comply with the license or choose to ignore it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Apple did a good job streamlining this product
With the price jump from around [$$$] for Logic Platinum to around [$$$] for Logic Pro, it's worth while considering that Logic Plat didn't come with any of the soft synths that are built into it. You have to pay an average of between [$$$] for each extra instrument [along with the vocoder and space designer] so the [$$$] price jump isnt bad at all. I bought Logic 6 Platinum and the upgrade price to Pro is worth it and I am very glad that I did NOT buy the seperate instruments. If you already did, then the upgrade might not be as worth it. I can't find too much info on what else is new or improved with this version. Logic may have a learning curve, but once you learn it inside and out, it's probably the most powerful Audio/MIDI package available. If only audio is your primary concern and you want something simple, then ProTools should be considered. But if you want total control over everything, then Logic is the way to go. Id say Logic for composers and more complex music, and ProTools for bands looking to record. Logic is also compatible with TDM hardware systems.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a no brainer for those using Logic on the Mac
If you already have Logic 5 or 6 on your Mac, this is a super deal. You get all of the emagic plugins and soft synths--even Space Designer, which was about $400 street a little while ago. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best DVD Authoring App on Market!!!
I've been authoring DVDs for years. I started off using Sonic Solutions authoring suite. We paid almost $... for this system in 1997. And SOnic only runs in OS9. Now you can have all that functionality for only $... with DVD Studio Pro. DVD Studio Pro 1.5 offers welcome improvements such as OS X compatibility, more-reliable previews, higher MPEG-2 compression quality, and tighter integration with Final Cut Pro 3, and the program remains the only viable choice for professional DVD authoring on the Mac. But Apple needs to deliver another version that improves usability, the bit-budgeting process, and documentation, so that new users can get up-to-speed faster and experienced users can work more efficiently. If you are serious about making DVDs, I suggest you have a dedicated machine for DVD Studio Pro. Once you start installing games and weird shareware apps, you will have issues with crashing and such. Bottom Line: This is a great application for a pro user and does everything "high end" systems like Sonic does, but better. Nice work Apple!

1-0 out of 5 stars A poorly conceived product
If you have a Mac, you really have no choice, this is all there is, and that's a shame. After using this program for the past month, I am considering buying a PC, and throwing away my Mac. It's that bad. Where Final Cut Pro shines, DVD Studio Pro [is not good]. If you do buy this software, be sure and buy Martin Sitter's excellent how-to book, as the slim provided manual tells you nothing. Martin Sitter's book will have you turning out DVD's in no time, provided you don't do something crazy like try to create a disc with subtitles.
This software is incredibly buggy. It crashes constantly. The Subtitle Editor (STE) is worse than useless, it is a crime against all of us who purchased this. Apple should be sued.
The STE uses non-drop-frame timecode, while the rest of the software demands you use dropframe (or else your audio won't synchronize properly). This leads to horrible build conflicts when chapter markers and subtitles are used together. (Unless you don't care if your audio is synced.)
Did I mention the crashes? The Apple DVD player is worthless, it won't even play commercial DVD's without crashing. Then there problems with DVD-9 layer breaks - I haven't tried building a DVD-9 yet, but I'm not looking forward to it, based on what I've read online. This program should not be sold as it is. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Expensive but worth every penny
Buy this upgrade!!

While not a true switcher (as I run a high end Win XP Pro PC(2.4 ghz dual Intel cpu 2 gig ram [money] Pro-graphics card and the fantastic Sony GWM-FW900 24" wide screen monitor) for [money] a seat 3d CAD/CAM software)

But to replace my ageing Dell 800 p-3 mostly used for games and fun with Linux) as a main home computer

I bought a top of the line iMac 800 G-4 super drive in March to see what all the fuss was about ref OS-X. as I am an old Unix geek thought it would make a nice BAD Unix toy if this Apple thing did not work out and it was so fine to look at as an industrial design engineer.

So if any one was entitled to be miffed with Apple at the full price on this 'point' upgrade it was I.

Well this is NO 'point' upgrade! this is like going from Wi 98sp2 to XP pro SP1 only much more so not only Was X 10.1.5 rock solid on the iMac G-4 this 10.2 is faster and better in every way in very subtle ways

If I could get my work software ported to OS-X I would have a dual G4-1.25 Ghz driving my Sony MFW-900 in a moment

I am a total convert to the fantastic beauty of this OS and I Have ordered Ashlar Velum Cobalt to see if it can replace my work PC software on a Mac

4-0 out of 5 stars Substantial improvement
This is a very stable, incredibly smooth OS. It launches at lightning speed, is very intuitive and the learning curve is very short. If there is a downside, compatible professional graphic software is in short supply. It is a huge improvement over Windows and previous Mac OS.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazon reviews: Now featuring False Information!
Mac OS X does not disable built-in floppy drives. Mac OS X runs better on computers that are built for it. Running it on a Beige G3 is like running Windows on a 486; you can do it, but it doesn't mean you should. Crashes occour from poorly-designed APPLICATIONS, not OS X. I have had OS X for over a year, and I have had only 2 'kernel panics' (full system lockups). hbj200 is wrong about the 1%. it's more like 8% and growing rapidly, and everyone uses Windows because they believe Bill's propaganda. There is more documentation about digital cameras that networking in OS 10.2 because of Rendezvous (Stable, Efficient Networking for Dummies)

5-0 out of 5 stars This is awesome
The best Mac OS yet. I'm amazed each day at the capabilities of this operating system. I haven't had to restart in nearly 5 months! This IS the smoothest, best looking, best running operating system I have EVER used! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A must have upgrade
This DV editing software is one of the best in the industry. While if you one version 1.x or 2.x who really are missing out on this new version. If you do NOT run OS X you should think twice about buying this product. However OSX users should definatly buy it because it adds native support. Also if you do not own a G4 also don't consider it because it is truley optimized for the G4 and will not preform well on a G3. ... Read more
