Product of the Day: Moving to Linux: Kiss the Blue Screen of Death Goodbye!
Title: Moving to Linux: Kiss the Blue Screen of Death Goodbye!Author: Marcel GagneéPublisher: Addison-Wesley
Moving to Linux: Kiss the Blue Screen of Death Goodbye! is not a book for techies. It's a book for people who write documents, create spreadsheets, surf the Web, send email, play games--and want to do it simply in Linux, without the need to become a technical expert. This book provides step-by-step instructions, in a down-to-earth writing style, for migrating to a Linux-based desktop. The book also includes a special bootable Linux Knoppix CD-ROM, enabling the reader to test-drive Linux without officially installing it.
"Marcel walks the user through each technique in a very chatty and comfortable style: in fact, when I put the book down, I had a momentary impression that I'd just finished watching a good cooking show with an entertaining chef. Moving to Linux is well laid out and organised, and is a good read. It provides enough information to get started, and to hold a novice's hand until they're comfortable with Linux. Experienced users will find it useful as a reference to dip into when they need a guide to a specific program or service."-- Jenn Vesperman of LinuxChix
"If you're tired of going through the computer world's version of the Black Plague, then I recommend getting Marcel's book. The subtitle is Kiss the Blue Screen of Death Goodbye. Marcel Gagné, true to form, has written another excellent book. What's more, its release couldn't have been timed better, and the formula he proposes for Linux migration is just what we need right now. With his book you have the possibility of trying Linux with no pain and no strings attached."-- Michael Jordan, LinuxOnline
