Review: Moving from Windows to Linux by Chuck Easttom
Moving from Windows to Linux declares in its opening paragraph that it is intended for Microsoft Windows power users and Linux novices. However, the focus of Moving from Windows to Linux is not always clear. At times the book seems to be oriented more toward new computer users. There is a lot of content on shell scripts, Web servers and FTP servers that would confuse even some Windows power users and possibly leave a new Linux user wondering what they had gotten themselves into or why it was important.
