The Guide for the Perplexed

This month's issue of Linux Format magazine features some work of mine: The Guide for the Perplexed – a small e-book for those wishing to get started with Linux.

They describe it as:

"... an excellent introduction to Linux [...] a great guide. It's 70 pages of easy-to-read text, along with some excellent screenshots."

In 2002 I moved to Shropshire in order to start an MSc in Computing at a local university. One of the first things I did was seek out my local LUG (Linux User Group) to meet like minded technophiles.

Soon after joining I wrote the Guide for the Perplexed for new Linux users and beginner members of the group. Unfortunately, it is very out-of-date and should be revised to include the latest-and-greatest developments.

Perhaps when I get more time… (the source file for OpenOffice can be found here)
