Getting started with Linux, for power users

Open Source Book coverHi! You've found a page that was previously published on OpenSourceSmall.biz, a web site associated with the book John wrote called Open Source Solutions for Small Business Problems. This book is available for purchase at Amazon (affiliate link), but we've rolled all the web site content into John's business site.

If you would like a good detailed overview for trying out Linux on a desktop, check out this story: Flexbeta - Fedora vs Mandrake vs Suse: Linux Distros Compared. It covers the three most popular Linux distributions, introducing you to desktop issues, office applications, and multimedia in Linux.

  1. If you are a user of business software and are interested in finding out more about open source options for your business or office, you may be a little bit frustrated about the lack of introductory-level information on this topic... The best single source of such information that I have found so far is John Locke's "Open Source Solutions for Small Business Problems." It provides an excellent introduction to the concepts, advantages, and disadvantages behind open-source.
