This is, without doubt, one of the least technical books reviewed so far on TechBookReport. This is a book aimed not at you, dear
developer/techie/guru, but at your friends, acquaintances and family who are lowly users of Windows. Yes, such people do exist even in the tightest of
families. Fear not, however, because salvation is at hand should any of them decide that this Linux thing might be worth investigating. No longer will
you be faced with the unenviable task of walking them through the process of switching OS. Moving to Linux: Kiss the Blue Screen of Death Goodbye! is
a big, bold and friendly guide to help them along. The emphasis is firmly on using Linux as a desktop system - this isn't a book about Linux as a
file, print or web server.
