They say that everyone has at least one book in them. And nowadays, thanks to sites like lulu.com, everyone can publish that book.
I have two to my credit and you are very welcome to read them.
Over those years, the whole cast of characters became good friends of mine, among them:
|Do you want to know more about Linux? Have you ever wondered if you should perhaps give it a try?
One of the most striking things about the Linux operating system is the affection that its users feel for it. Microsoft Windows may dominate the desktop market as far as sheer numbers are concerned, but it inspires very little actual love among its myriad users.
This book sets out to explore that riddle in depth. It shows how the world of free software works and why it is such a good deal for users. Then the remarkably simple internal structure of a Linux system is explained. Readers can see how each part works and how the whole thing hangs together.
For far too long people have been forced to use complex systems that they do not understand because the internal workings have been deliberately concealed in the name of commercial secrecy. The charm of Linux is that it puts you back in the driving seat.
The Charm of Linux is available as a paperback from www.lulu.com.
