Windows XP for Dummies, Second Edition
Andy Rathbone
0764573268
September 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Windows XP for Dummies does a good job in its role as the flagship of the Dummies line, providing Windows novices with a guided introduction to Microsoft's latest and most feature-rich operating system for everyday computer users. Its treatment of computer, Windows, and Internet fundamentals is among the best on the market, and author Andy Rathbone has an appealing way of writing that's simultaneously fun and detail-rich. If you're a Windows novice--meaning you don't know how to undelete a file that's been sent to the Recycle Bin, or what a Web browser is, or what it means to "cut and paste" text--you will get a lot out of Rathbone's work.

Some aspects of this book could be better, such as the part of the networking chapter that calls for an Ethernet hub without noting that a switch, though possibly more expensive, would...



Learning Python, Second Edition
Mark Lutz, David Ascher
0596002815
December 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The authors of Learning Python show you enough essentials of the Python scripting language to enable you to begin solving problems right away, then reveal more powerful aspects of the language one at a time. This approach is sure to appeal to programmers and system administrators who have urgent problems and a preference for learning by semi-guided experimentation.

First off, Learning Python shows the relationships among Python scripts and their interpreter (in a mostly platform-neutral way). Then, the authors address the mechanics of the language itself, providing illustrations of how Python conceives of numbers, strings, and other objects as well as the operators you use to work with them. Dictionaries, lists, tuples, and other data structures specific to Python receive plenty of attention including complete...

Microsoft Windows XP (Inside Out Series)
Ed Bott
073562044X
October 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Ed Bott and Carl Siechert have combined their considerable talents for producing user-level documentation in creating Microsoft Windows XP Inside Out. One of the most carefully researched books on Windows XP to date, this large volume has all the information and procedures most everyday users of the operating system will want. With its nicely formatted how-to instructions, detailed documentation of command-line commands, intelligent explanatory text, and broad scope, this book makes a great reference for a family or business that uses Windows XP extensively. Even the illustrations are more helpful than usual, largely because the publisher has gone to the trouble of annotating many of them with pointers and labels.

Bott and Siechert deal with the most controversial features of Windows XP, notably product activation, in a...

From the Inside Flap
Introduction 0.1 THE AS/400 LEGACY In the early part of 1988 the computer industry was buzzing with rumors of the "Silverlake" project. Although most of the technical details were kept under wraps, the industry knew "Silverlake" was the next generation of IBM midrange processors-the heir apparent to the throne room where the System/38 ruled from one chair and the System/36 from another. In many minds "Silverlake" was to usher in a new generation of midrange computing which would shore up the position of midrange processors in the face of the encroaching hordes of PCs, LANs, and the crumbling bastions of mainframes. The name "Silverlake" was borrowed from a body of water located near the IBM Rochester, Minnesota center responsible for the development of the system. Although several analysts predicated the final...
