If nothing else, Apple Computer has grown adept at maintaining suspense when it comes to new releases of its user-friendly operating system, Mac OS. But Mac OS 7.6 is finally here, and with its combination of performance enhancements, bug fixes, additional features, and new technologies, it almost seems worth the wait.

In Mac OS 7.6 For Dummies, Mac guru Bob LeVitus gives you the rundown on what's new, what's different, and what will and won't work with your existing software and hardware. In plain English, LeVitus reveals how to . . .

  • Put to use recent Apple innovations, such as Cyberdog, HotSauce, OpenDoc, and QuickTime 2.5
  • Get on the Internet with Mac OS 7.6 -- it's never been easier
  • Customize the look and feel of your Mac with new OS options
  • Conserve RAM and hard disk space by discarding programs and files you don't need -- you'll also boost performance this way
