Book Review: Spring into Linux

Filed under
Reviews

Janet Valade compresses 19 chapters into 360 pages of text and screenshots including information on both the KDE and Gnome desktops, how to install Fedora, Mandrake, and SUSE (What...no Debian-based distro?), and how to write a shell script. While the book is touted as for Linux newbies, it is expected from the start that the reader be computer literate in Windows or on a Mac. Unlike Moving to Linux by Marcel Gagne', this book's target audience doesn't seem to be quite focused on the average home user but rather higher level end users who may want to learn Linux.

Information in each chapter is distilled down to just 2 or 3 page tasks with each subsequent task building on the previous ones in the chapter. In other words, it would be difficult to skip around in a chapter since you might miss an important step that's found a few pages earlier.

Full Story.

Review: Linux Mint 18 (Sarah)

If you were looking to jump the Ubuntu ship completely, then we recommend taking a look at our recent Review of Fedora 24. It’s equally as good as Mint 18 and equally worthy of your consideration. Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
