Linux Books and similar Ilk vs Microsoft
So I'm reading this Linux book, and lo and behold its just like every other Linux and MAC OS book out there: Its just a bunch of Microsoft bashing. Microsoft took what in the 80s and early 90s was an intimidating, difficult to use, difficult to learn piece of equipment and made it so that a three year old could learn it and use it. How is this a bad thing?

I'd have to see the quote you saw. Generally bashing is kept to a minimum but it happens on all sides. MS and Apple have both bashed everyone else.

I've read several Linux books, and never saw any bashing involved.
Were there detailed explanations describing the differences of the various OSs available? Absolutely.
I forget the title, but I thumbed through a book last year the spoke quite fairly of Windows and OSX, in regards that there is still a need for those systems.

Hello and welcome!
I've read quite a few Linux books in the past, but don't recall any bashing of Windows, although some books did point out differences between the products. That said, I believe a 3 year old child could quickly learn to use Linux, too, if given a real chance.oz
