Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The goals of this book are to convince users of other desktop operating systems that Linux is adequate to fulfill all of their computing needs, and to guide the brave through the switch to a Linux platform. The target audience is a computer user … . The overall impression is that a moderately technical person may be intrigued enough to break open the enclosed CD and try Linux on a spare machine." (Alberto Squassabia, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (5), May, 2008)
