Yosemite is a milestone in the development of OS X, a product that John Siracusa has been reviewing for Ars Technica since 1999. Learn what’s new in Yosemite: iOS integration, Extensions, application changes, iCloud Drive, and, of course, the bold new look. This is not a how-to guide; it’s a review of the operating system that explores the technologies and philosophies behind the features, all within the historical context of the Mac platform.
Fantastic and challenging
It’s trully challening to read John articles and reviews. He has such a deep knowledge of not only the subject at hand but also diverse array of related topics, that you must be prepared to follow quite a lot of links in this book.
This is a book, like its predecessors, that demands a lot of time to be properly read. Several weeks after I got it, I have finished reading. It’s amazingly detailed and good.
I have been reading John's Mac OS X reviews since the beginning, and they never fail to disappoint. John's Yosemite review lives up to the high standards of his last work. If you're curious about Apple's latest operating system, this book is $5 well spent.
Thank you, John
Siracusa sets the gold standard for operating system reviews. It's a shame that other operating systems seem not to ignite the kind of passion that OSX does in John. When he retires from doing this labor of love, the void may never be filled. Enjoy his labor while you can.
