If the various applications Apple built into Mac OS X are the spokes of the big wheel that makes up our computers, then the System Preferences window would have to be the hub that connects them. But how much do you really know about what goes on in that window?
While not every Mac OS X application takes advantage of it, an increasing number of software programs have started calling System Preferences their home.
