    Hey guys, I'm new to apple, and I've seen these words around posts. I'm not really sure what they mean, hoping you guys could explain me...

    What do these word mean?

    GUI
    BSOD
    kernel
    AAC (as in music files, what does it stand for?)

    I know I have more words I don't know, I'll post them as I remember them

    It's Motorola's "Generation" for the different CPU models.

    Not Motorola's. The "G" does stand for "Generation", but that's Apple's branding.

    The PPC 601 and 603 (IBM) series could be considered the "G1" and the 604 series (IBM again) are "G2". The 750xx (IBM) are the "G3" processors, 74xx (Motorola) are the G4 processors, and the 970xx processors (IBM) are G5.
