OS X Transition: A Survival Guide for Designers and Design Management--Seminar Report and Tips

Over the past few months I've been reading, bookmarking, and testing everything I could get could my hands on as far as OS X's impact on design and publishing networks is concerned. I needed to create a full-day, lecture/demo-based seminar on the topic of "how to keep a design network running smoothly while moving from OS 9 to OS X" for Dynamic Graphics Training (be careful what you pitch!) and so I wanted to be as prepared and accurate as possible.

Purchasing Panther (OS X 10.3) for Less

If you go to Apple's Panther preview page :

… you'll see a "Buy Now" link. Apple's charging $129.00 for a single copy and $199.00 for a family pack of 5 users, the same price it charged for Jaguar (10.2). Unless you purchased a new Mac or a copy of Jaguar after October 8 (in which case you can upgrade to Panther for shipping and handling after it's released), there is no discounted upgrade price for current OS X owners.

Couldn't Care Less about OS X?

If you're happily using OS 9 or you're a Windows user, I apologize for not having any relevant content for you in this issue! I've just been in an OS X frenzy recently, as you can tell, and it's spilling over to all areas of my life. Now that the first seminar's over, I can start thinking about other things.

I have a backlog of great tips for DesignGeek that I'm going to try and clear out in upcoming issues, as well as information about Adobe Creative Studio and QuarkXPress 6. So stay tuned!
