    Book Review: Spring into Linux



    Review by James Pyles
    April 13, 2006

    This is the second of a three-part series of reviews on books written for people migrating from Windows to Linux. The first book was Marcel Gagne's Moving to Linux, Second Edition. You might want to read that review before this one, since I draw comparisions between the two.

    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.
