|Categories||Download eBook: Linux Client Migration Cookbook: A Practical Guide for Migrating to Desktop Linux|
The goal of this book is to provide a technical planning reference for IT organizations large or small that are now considering a migration to Linux-based personal computers. For Linux, there is a tremendous amount of "how-to" information available online that addresses specific and very technical operating system configuration issues, platform-specific installation methods, user interface customizations, and so forth.
This book includes some technical "how-to" as well, but the overall focus of the content in this book is to walk the reader through some of the important considerations and planning issues that you could encounter during a migration project. Within the context of a pre-existing Microsoft Windows-based environment, we attempt to present a more holistic, end-to-end view of the technical challenges and methods necessary to complete a successful migration to Linux-based clients.
This second version of the Linux Client Migration Cookbook builds on the content strategy we started with in the first version. Although anyone interested in using Linux on the desktop could benefit from different portions of this book, our primary audience for this book is existing business IT environments that need to begin an evaluation of desktop Linux, or in a broader sense, any organization whose strategy is to move toward greater adoption of open source software and open standards.
