Linux Journal: Book Review -- Learning Debian GNU/Linux

Feb 27, 2000, 20:06 (1 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Marjorie Richardson)

"Like most O'Reilly books, Learning Debian GNU/Linux is well-organized and well-written. The author, Bill McCarty, is an associate professor of computer science and obviously knows his stuff. The layout is well-done, and not filled with cutesy graphics to distract the eye."

"This book contains a goodly amount of information, and not all of it is for the newbie. It is truly a guide to the entire system, not just an introduction."

"Mr. McCarty devotes entire chapters to user administration and X configuration, as well as networking. His desktop of choice is GNOME, and it too receives a chapter. Also included are chapters on games and connecting to the Internet."
