From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
Nowadays, more non-technical people are giving Linux a whirl. It’s easier than it was -- graphical user interfaces, and all. But when you can’t figure something out or you run into trouble, it’s been tough to find “non-geek” help. Until now.
Rockford Grant walks you through the tasks you’re most likely to care about. Basic productivity tasks with OpenOffice. Web browsing, email, and instant messaging. Hooking up printers, modems, even WiFi. Playing MP3s, burning CDs, editing photos. (He also presents some Linux toys we haven’t seen elsewhere: language learning software and digital mah-jongg, for instance.)
You also get a two-CD set of the latest version of Fedora Core Linux, plus bonus software. You shouldn’t have to buy a thing, except this book. Bill Camarda
