When it comes to OS X there have been ten (10) major releases when you include Public Beta:
For my review of OS X I used an iMac G3 700mhz Blueberry for versions 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4, for OS X 10.5, 10.6 & 10.7 an iMac Intel Core 2 Duo & OS X 10.8 a MacBook Pro i7
*For OS release dates, cost, history, and general information, I used MacTracker found at www.mactracker.ca which is an amazing application that gives you detailed information on every Apple Macintosh computer ever made including ipods, iphones,Operating Systems and so much More. Download it today!

How many people knew that the first OS X "Public Beta" was internally codenamed "Kodiak"?
The Mac OS X Public Beta (internally codenamed "Kodiak") was an early beta version of Apple Computer's Mac OS X operating system Cheetah. It was released to the public on September 13, 2000 for US$29.95. It allowed software developers and early adopters to test a preview of the upcoming operating system and develop software for the forthcoming operating system before its final release.
If you are in need to take you iMac apart to replace the Hard Drive, Dvd-Rom, etc. then check out the following videos showing what tools you need as well as the proper steps to get the job done.
The reason for doing these video is because when I was asked to find a good online "How-To" for taking apart an iMac I came across a number of videos where users just showed that you simply take the four scews out of the bottom of the panel and pull the panel off.... they failed to show you that you need to also disconnect the panel from the top as well.
In these videos I will show you how to properly remove the front panel as well as LCD so you can gain access to the inside for repairs.
With this I have also done up a video showing you how to make a Free Apple Access Card Tool which is needed to remove the front panel from your iMac.

Adobe CS6 for Mac has done away with the ability to license an install of Adobe CS and then image the computer and use that very image for mass deployment to labs. Now if you enter the SN# into the image it’s bound to the computer it’s installed on and will prompt to run in trial mode if imaged to another computer.
To deploy Adobe CS6 you will need to use a few things. You will need to download the Creative Suite Enterprise Deployment Utility found here http://www.adobe.com/devnet/creativesuite/enterprisedeployment.html
