Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Easy Linux?!?! Can this be?

Yes!

This full-color, highly visual book actually does make Linux easy to use. You get a copy of Caldera OpenLinux 2.2, one of the easiest Linuxes to install, and you get visual step-by-step instructions for over 110 of the tasks Linux beginners are most likely to perform—starting with installation.

OpenLinux 2.2 depends on KDE as its default graphical user interface, and so does this book. You'll walk through all the basics of using KDE: running, closing, and switching among applications; using the KDE browser-based help system; finding and working with files; cutting and pasting data amongst KDE applications—all the stuff you might've already mastered in Windows or the Mac, but have to learn again in Linux.

There's a full chapter on setting up Linux for the Internet: sending and reading email, working with Netscape, using the Netscape newsreader (both come with OpenLinux 2.2); even using RealPlayer streaming audio.

Here and there, you must still descend to the old-fashioned Linux console (e.g., changing your video depth in Xwindows, setting up a printer, configuring an Ethernet connection). EASY LINUX descends with you, gently walking you through whatever command line or Linux utility techniques you need to know.

Long-time Linux hackers will be amused by this book (especially when they come across the misspelling of Linus Torvalds' name in the acknowledgments). But if you're new to Linux, EASY LINUX is the fastest way to get productive that we've ever seen, period.
