"The premise of Linux! I Didn't Know You Could Do That... is rather interesting. It's not so much a "how to" but rather a "look what I can do" sort of book."

"The author, Nicholas D. Wells, takes a unique approach with this book. It's not something you would read front to back. Rather you scan the index, find out what you want to do, and flip to the section that warrants your interest."

"That said, the book does cover the rather advanced topic of using WINE to run Windows-based applications under Linux and the not-so-advanced topic of playing games such as Quake II, Doom, and Minesweeper."
