Marcel Gagne, very famous for his "Cooking with Linux"
columns in Linux Journal, has informed us about his
second book "Moving to Linux: Kiss the Blue Screen of Death Goodbye!" It concentrates on the user desktop, specifically KDE 3.1. This book covers basic desktop functions, KMail, Konqueror, KDE printing, CD burning, multimedia, games, etc. You can watch a nice slide presentation about the book in Shockwave Flash or OpenOffice Impress on the site. Marcel has also stated that beside bookstore sales, there are a few desktop Linux training companies that are starting to use the book as their Linux desktop guide. The book comes with a remastered Knoppix disk featuring, you guessed it, KDE. But we have even more hot news...
We have a scoop about a new book Marcel is writing. He is finishing his third book which will feature KDE 3.2 as
the corporate desktop of choice. In fact, the book is a blueprint for moving offices from Windows to Linux desktops. "I chose KDE as my primary desktop for many reasons. If I had to pick one over the others, it
would have to be the sheer beauty of usability. If ever there was a desktop environment that could make the corporate world sit up and notice Linux, it is most certainly KDE," notes Marcel.
