“Linux software is like gold on the moon. It’s wonderful, if you have a way to get it.” —Kevin Carmony, President and CEO, Linspire Inc.
Sick of Windows Viruses, Crashes, and Expensive Upgrades?
There’s a better alternative: Linux. It’s not just for “geeks” anymore. It’s for you—and it’s for real. With Peter van der Linden’s Guide to Linux®, Linux isn’t just powerful, it’s easy and fun.
While writing this book, the author spent an entire year helping new Linux users get started and once again demonstrated that he is flat-out brilliant at simplifying technology. He knows all the tricks and the quickest ways to help make you productive. Before demonstrating how to do something faster, easier, and better with Linux, he reminds you how it works in Windows. Along the way, he anticipates potential missteps and questions, and fills in the gaps other books ignore.
