Edward L. Haletky

"Mr. Haletky leverages his extensive experience with Linux/Unix to present a picture of the options for moving from a Windows Desktop to a Linux Desktop that is both wide and deep. This book will help you evaluate honestly whether Linux will work for your desktop, and if so, whether the move will be worth the cost." – Christopher Sweeney, Pleasant Crab Consulting.

Ed's book is a great tool for anyone with some basic Linux experience who is trying to implement a desktop with functionality similar to Microsoft Windows. Beyond just a hobbyist interest - If I was asked to implement Linux on my desktop at work, Ed's book is the first one I would go to. – Pat Lampert, HP Services
