Summary

Summary

A hip introduction which covers not only the history and evolution of Linux in particular and open source software in general, but also issues such as women in the IT world; viruses, hackers, and Linux security; and gaming, penguins, and the Linux lifestyle. Numerous Joy of Tech comics from geekculture.com are a nice touch. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.
