Book excerpts:

The year 2000 was the breakout year for Linux. References in the popular press continuously referred to this Open Source operating system as "renegade" and "upstart". Now, as this millennial year fades in our memories, more people and more companies are adopting this now "serious contender", Linux.

Caldera's OpenLinux, as exemplified by eDesktop 2.4, is a top-notch distribution. From among the many available software packages, applications, tools, utilities, and suites, Caldera Systems (based in Orem, Utah, USA) has assembled best-of-breed products. In doing so they performed all the necessary compatibility and integration testing to make sure that the pieces work together properly.

While in many senses, "Linux is Linux is Linux", the OpenLinux family has a distinctive feel. This starts with the best graphical installation tools in the industry, the Lizard. Caldera has standardized on the KDE desktop, and integrated a suite of programs that can meet virtually any business or personal need, from word processing to spreadsheets to photo editing, as well as email, news, browser, and chat utilities.

Brian and Tom's Linux Book is written to help every Linux user, from the newbie who's just getting started, to someone who's been around the block once or twice and wants to have a handy broad reference to all the capabilities of this solid distribution. Included in this title are all of the tips, tricks, shortcuts, and hidden features that we've come across in our extensive travels with Linux in general, and especially as they apply to OpenLinux eDesktop 2.4.
