Library Journal
A little more than a year ago both Apple and the Mac were given up for dead. The only question was who was going to buy Apple. Suddenly Steve Jobs reappeared, becoming the interim CEO for no salary. Jobs introduced the iMac, the iBook, and the G3/4s, and Apple is back with a passion. Now the company's biggest problem is producing enough because everything is selling like crazy. Apple has a new operating system, OS 9, which is more than an incremental improvement over OS 8. Integrated within OS 9 is the AppleScripting language, a personal web server that can be easily set up on an ethernet, and Sherlock, which allows the Mac to search simultaneously on both the local hard drive and any connected networks, including the Internet, without taking over the way Microsoft's "Active Desktop" does. And then there is also the iBook, easily the coolest portable design imaginable. All of these guides are excellent for OS 9 and the iBook. If you have Macintosh users among your patrons, these texts will circulate as fast as the Mac is selling. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
