Based on Xandros 3, arguably one of the most user-friendly versions of Linux available today, Linux Made Easy concentrates on the subjects of most interest to the average home user or hobbyist: installation, using the Internet, playing CDs and audio files, using scanners, working with digital cameras and images, games, downloading software and fonts, USB storage devices, PDAs, printing, Internet telephony, and more.
product description

Linux is an operating system, just like Windows or Mac OS. If you're looking at this book, you're probably somewhat of a Linux newbie. Maybe you're a Windows refugee--you just can't take it anymore or you want to stop paying through the nose for software and the latest buggy upgrade. Or you just want to try something new.

Linux Made Easy is a hands-on, step-by-step, project-based guide that will make it easier than ever for you to join the world of Linux and start using it instead of Windows. And, thanks to the Xandros version of Linux (included with this book), the transition from Windows to Linux is easier than ever before.

Linux Made Easy concentrates on the subjects most non-geeks care about, like installation (easy as pie); using the Internet; playing CDs, using scanners; working with digital cameras and photos; playing games; downloading software; syncing PDAs; printing; and making Internet phone calls (we even give you a 120-minute SkypeOut coupon).

Whatever your level of experience, Linux Made Easy will show you how to do everything with Linux that you're used to doing with Windows--and more. And you've got everything that you need to get started right here: Xandros on CD and those free SkypeOut minutes so you can call Microsoft and ask for a refund on that unused version of Windows XP.
