Review Text

  • By darrelljon on 1 March 2008

    I think this book is overrated, as it seems to focus on using a graphical user interface more than how Linux is different to Windows. If you've used Windows before, this book is probably too easy. I much preferred Test Driving Linux by Marcel Gagne which actually explained the differences to Windows.

    Although a few years old it has a lot of information that lets you understand Linux. It also has Tutorials for Open Office. Well worth the few bob for this book & CD

    A bit dated now, as Simply Mepis is now known as Mepis Linux and is up to version 8. Still worth a read as a general overview of Mepis and Linux in general.
