Book News Annotation:

Even dummies sometimes find themselves using UNIX, and there they are without the technical training or often the inclination to learn all the esoterics about the mother of all operating systems; they just want to know how to accomplish what should be simple tasks. The brother-sister team who give UNIX power to Dummies update their guide with information on the increasingly popular Linux version, the new KDE and GNOME window systems, Internet applications, and Internet site hosting.
