It's My Philosophy

I have a philosophy. All right, I have many, and this is just one of them.

Every once in a while, people tell me that desktop Linux is just crazy, that it is just too complicated for the majority of people.

I don't know about you, but I am tired of being told that people can't learn to use something that is both good and powerful. With a certain amount of training and a little proper guidance, anyone who is familiar with a computer can learn to use Linux.

That isn't to say that working with Linux is difficult (it is not), but as you go along, you will be learning new things. This book is meant for users at every level of experience. It is meant to be read for fun, as well as for reference. And because I'll ask you to try things throughout this book, it's a training guide, as well.

I'm delighted and thrilled that you've decided to join me in Moving to Linux. It's time to kiss the Blue Screen of Death goodbye!
