Segment Two- Moving To Linux- A book by Marcel Gagné
Tonight we will be joined by long time Linux Show friend Marcel Gagné. Marcel has been a guest on TLS before as a interesting and dynamic member of our community. We are pleased to have him on the show once again, and for such a good reason, the release of his new book Moving To LINUX This book is also subtitled as a tease, "Kiss the Blue Screen of Death Goodbye."
Marcel Gagné is probably best known as the award-winning author of the Linux Journal "Cooking with Linux Series", for which he received the Readers' Choice award for favorite column three years in a row. His first book was the highly acclaimed "Linux System Administration : A User's Guide".
Marcel is also one of the best known advocacy voices of the Linux community, he has written over 200 articles on Linux and open source projects for various publications including Linux Journal, InformIT, Unix Review, SysAdmin magazine, and others. A long-time systems and network administrator, he now runs a systems and network consulting firm, is a published science fiction author and editor, a pilot, an avid science and astronomy buff, and a former top 40 disc jockey. He also folds a mean Origami T-Rex and is one hell of a nice guy.
Jeffs Review so far....
"I have to tell you the truth, it is show time and I have only had the chance to read a few chapters in Marcels new book. But so far I really love it. It is an idea first time primer to the Linux newbie and more readable than Linux for Dummies. I am also very happy that there is a companion CD. Just like Marcel's well know column at Linux JournalCooking with Linux the book is laid out in a very well organized step by step fashion. This will make all the more easier for the newbie. I also love the fact that Marcel does not take life so serious, and can inject humor in the book. The ONLY suggestion I would make is that marcel write a companion piece that would create a series of tasks or exercises to supplement each chapters topic. That would make this very well written book also available as a text material. We need more good Linux Texts and this is a candidate."
