Buying Windows 98? Try a Linux for Idiots guide too

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "Catalogue reseller Action Computers has decided that people thinking about
purchasing Windows 98 from it would do well to consider Linux instead.

On a page on its site describing Windows 98, Action lists Liberty Linux for Dummies
Quick Reference manual and an Idiot's Guide to Linux by Que as related items a
Windows 98 shopper might want to buy. These guides, unlike Windows 98 itself, are
only available from Action's back order catalogue, so buyers would have to wait
over a week after getting Microsoft's operating system before getting clued up on
open source."
