    Morning folks.

    I'm after a beginners guide to Unix on Leopard - I've found a number of titles for previous versions of X, but nothing strikingly obvious for Leopard.

    I could be wrong on this one, but my understanding is that Unix has changed somewhat under X.5!

    Many thanks in advance... ;)

    If you're a noob to UNIX then any changes that happened are completely irrelevant to you. I am no UNIX expert and can say I notice nothing different between 10.4 and 10.5. Google is your friend, and UNIX is not user necessarily user friendly. So if all UNIX guides look confusing or difficult that's simply because UNIX requires a bit of patience. Really worth investing some time though, there's much to be learned.
