I've been running 10.3.9 for several years now but I never really learned the ins and outs of it. I've learned new stuff just recently. I was thinking of getting a general book about the operating system, its use and also the included Apple Software. What books do you recommend? I know some really basic Unix commands, and I'd like a book that includes some info on using the Terminal. I've been impressed by O'Reilly books, so I was thinking of getting the Missing Manual; is that good? One question I have is which version I should get of that book, or any other. I have 10.3.9, but I'll probably have to upgrade sometime. I don't know if I'd get a refurb with 10.4, as I'd have to buy RAM as well as have the older OS. Could I get one book that would be good for both 10.3 and 10.5, or are they too different? PS: Also, If I go back to school I'll probably need some sort of Windows machine. (Of course, I might be able to use one of the Intel Macs for that.) I have minimal experience with Windows, just using it for basic tasks at school. Any basic recommended books on running a Windows machine wouldn't hurt. I wouldn't know whether to get one on XP or Vista though.
