Apple has announced that customers can now buy Mac OS X in stores around the world. Mac OS X is claimed to be the world's most advanced operating system, combining the power and openness of UNIX with the legendary ease  of use and broad applications base of Macintosh.

Mac OS X is built upon a stable, open source, UNIX-based foundation called Darwin and features true memory protection, pre-emptive multi-tasking and symmetric multiprocessing when running on the dual  processor Power Mac G4. Mac OS X includes Apple's new Quartz 2D graphics engine (based on the Internet-standard Portable Document Format) for stunning graphics and broad font support; OpenGL for spectacular 3D graphics and gaming; and QuickTime for streaming audio and video. Mac OS X also features an entirely new user interface called Aqua. Aqua combines superior ease of use with amazing new functionality such as the Dock, a breakthrough for organising, documents and document windows.

Mac OS X requires a minimum of 128MB of memory and is designed to run on the following Apple products: iMac, iBook, Power Macintosh(r) G3, Power Mac G4, Power Mac G4 Cube and any PowerBook introduced after May 1998.

The new system will be available through The Apple Store

(http://www.apple.com/ukstore) and through Apple Authorised Resellers for a suggested selling price of 99 (inc VAT).
