Book excerpts:

Not long ago, Linux was the plaything of the technical elite. Today, however, Linux is much easier to use. Every day brings a new tool or feature designed for ease of use. If you work with Microsoft Windows and have dabbled a bit in MS- DOS, or are curious about what happens inside Windows, you can install and configure Linux. Thousands of people from all walks of life - even journalists, who are notorious for their technical ineptitude - have already done so.

Learning Debian GNU/Linux will make your Linux journey easier, by giving you the big picture, providing you with step-by-step procedures, and getting you started doing useful or fun activities, such as word processing or games. This book focuses on the needs of the new Linux user and on desktop Linux applications. You'll learn about networks and servers, but the details of those topics are left for more advanced books.

Much of the material in this book applies to Linux generally and not merely to Debian GNU/Linux; so, even if you prefer to use another Linux distribution, you'll probably find this book useful.

:( "This book does not give you very good overview what is so special with Debian."
