mac_os_x_leopard Macintosh operating system is one of the best innovations of apple.But it is hard for people who are using windows operating system to get used to mac os but not a big deal can get used to it in a little bit of time.

Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is Apple’s first major operating system it has more than three hundred features .Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard will cost you around $129 and up to five users can install it .

Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard will take an installation time of around 40 mins on an mac book.To run Leopard, you’ll need an Intel or PowerPC G5 Mac. A PowerPC-based G4 Mac with an 867MHz or better processor will work, as well. Apple suggests having 512MB of RAM.The boot time for this operating system is around 28 seconds.

Additionally, you’ll need a USB or FireWire external backup drive to use Time Machine. Features on iChat require a Webcam.After installation when you start to use it most of the design element features are same as in an iphone for example the slide show feature that you get in an iphone.

In case if you want to restore an earlier file just go to an earlier time and click on the restore button you will be zoomed back to your present desktop.But apple doesn’t provide you the option of password-protection and encryption options but if you are using mac for a long time then you can explore such options easily.Ichat helps you with the option of sharing files and can control each other desktops.

Mac’s mail options has 32 e-mail templates which enable you to drop in pictures and resize them with a built-in photo browser.And you are also provided with one of the coolest web browser which is the safari, there is also options for connecting more cameras via cable or Wi-Fi, and for other gadgets via Bluetooth.

The firewall which is present in this operating system is not turned on by default as in windows xp or vista and parental controls are available which can help in case if it is an young web browser .
