Book ~ "The Windows Vista Book" (2008) Matt Kloskowski and Kleber Stephenson

From Amazon.com ~ With so many books out there on Windows Vista, what makes this one better and different is its focus. While other Vista books can regularly be 500 or more pages, this book cuts through all the technical jargon and gives you exactly what you want: the most important, most requested, and just plain coolest things about Vista that will change the way you work on your PC. Each page covers just one topic, complete with full color photos and screenshots, making it easy to find what you’re looking for fast. You’ll learn how to take advantage of Vista’s newest features in order to better manage your digital photos, secure your computer, play your music, customize your computer’s look and feel, work with video, back up your data, and much, much more.

When I bought my laptop in January, it came with Windows Vista, which I'd never even heard of before! My neighbour, Brock, had told me which laptop to buy and advised me to try Vista. If I didn't like Vista, he said he'd install Windows for me. Deal!

So I poked around, figured out some stuff and stuck with it. It wasn't so bad.

This book was great for filling in the blanks and teaching me things I didn't even know I had to know!

Now I realize what a powerful operating system is!

There seems to be too many compatibility problems with this software. We've been putting off upgrading to it. Nice to know someone likes it.
