Foolish Assumptions

Unlike some other computer books, you won’t find a lot of filler here — no dissertations that have no bearing on the task at hand. I assume that you bought this book to accomplish specific tasks, using Mountain Lion Server.

You also won’t find lectures on what’s in the Print dialog box or how to search for a file because I assume that you’re already a computer user. But I don’t assume that you’re an Apple-Certified System Administrator. I explain the alphabet soup of acronyms that you find in some of the Server’s technospeak.

Don’t worry if you’re new to the Mac. I explain any Apple-specific knowledge that you need. Experienced Mac users can skip bits of Mac-specific material. Similarly, you don’t need any experience with Windows if you want to support Windows clients with your Mac server. I show you what you need to know.

I don’t make any assumptions about what hardware you’re running. I provide some guidance as to what Mac is right for you in Chapter 2.
