Editorial Reviews Review

Windows machines are becoming more Mac-like, and Macs adopt more Windows features every day, but a considerable gulf remains between the two popular consumer platforms. Macintosh Windows Integration: Integrating Your Macintosh with Windows 95/98 and Windows NT Environments explains how to get work done in an environment that includes both kinds of computers.

As an aid to those with experience in only one kind of computer's networking conventions, there's coverage on networking Macs and a separate chapter on networking Windows machines. After laying that groundwork, the book dives into cross-platform networking with TCP/IP and other protocols.

You'll find explicit procedures, accompanied by lots of screen shots, that show how to fit a Mac into a nest of Windows boxes and vice versa. There's a very helpful section on hooking one Mac to a single Windows computer via a null modem cable or crossover Ethernet cable, as well as some documentation of Virtual PC, SoftWindows, and hardware-based solutions for running PC software on the Mac. There's a lot of information here about Unix machines too. --David Wall

Topics covered: Exchanging files on floppy disks, converting files with special software, reconciling differences in filename conventions, and setting up multiple partitions on storage devices.

From the Back Cover

Macintosh Windows Integration declares a truce in the OS wars by enabling organizations to effectively integrate both platforms. From using Macs on Windows NT networking, to sharing files and printers, to running Windows on Macs, Macintosh Windows Integration covers every aspect of cross-platform integration used by businesses. John Rizzo's book is filled with practical tips for solving cross-platform problems, as well as how-to information and discussions of the products and utilities that make a Mac-and-PC workflow system a reality.

  • There has never been as complete a collection of Macintosh-Windows integration solutions anywhere, either in print or on the web.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I wanted to be able to use my PowerBook to access our office resources, which are 100 per cent Windows-centric. I've managed to avoid learning anything about networking in the past--at work, all of that's handled by others and at home, AppleTalk makes having to know anything optional. Lucky for me, I came across this book. It's well-organized and concise; I was able to find what I needed to know and skip over parts that weren't relevent. The book isn't bogged down in details--in many places, it simply points you in the right direction or at the right software solution. Within a week or so of buying this book, I was working almost seamlessly with our Windows stuff using my PowerBook!
