Peter van der Linden's guide to Linux. (CD-ROM included)
Van der Linden, Peter.
In a guide for mainstream users who want to learn Linux, a computer industry veteran presents an unusually balanced treatment of what Linux's open source software has to offer in contrast to the Windows operating system. He covers the basics of installing and using Linux features, Web tools, and adding applications. Appendices offer further information on command tools and troubleshooting. The included CD is for PCs that run Windows. Van der Linden is the author of Java 2 (2004).
