TuxPPC.org: Review: Getting Started with Yellow Dog Linux

[ Thanks to Marc Bintener for this link. ]

"'Getting started with Yellow Dog Linux' is excellent in what it explains. However, the manual is quite as bad in what it does not explain. Indeed, it is very incomplete and I'd say even unappropriate to new Linux users. The topics they chose to explain are often "nice" but miss the essential things.

The concept of the manual is brilliant, using simple and comprehensive language to get to the point, however the realization of that concept has been a mere catastrophy.

Everything goes well till the end of the Installation Guide. After that, the authors have lost their own tracks. Indeed, in my opinion they did not cover the basic stuff users will want to do once they are in Linux."
