Lesson 18 discusses the multi-user nature of the Mac OS X. Underneath the smooth appearance and easy-to-use features of the Mac lies Unix, a mainstay of the scientific and industrial community for 40 years.
Unix is strong, dependable, and secure; and its “rocket scientist” capabilities are revealed in its handling of multiples users, file permissions, and parental controls.
The Macs in the labs allow us users to work only in our own folders, so you won’t be able to try out any administrator functions. We will cover the main points and it will be up to you to take control of the Macintoshes in your life.
Carefully read the Overview of Multiple Users, Create New Users, Share Files with Others, and Set permissions for Shared Files. Skim over the rest of the sections to get an idea of the various options.
