lacking information, however, is in the capability of Linux as a desktop replacement for a Microsoft Windows dominated enterprise. Linux Business Desktop Migration for Windows Users explores the advantages of Linux as a desktop platform and the possible pitfalls associated with a Linux migration. The goal is to make the leap with as little disruption as possible and realize tangible benefits in the end. In order to make this possible, the book focuses on four main points: teaching the factors involved in a Windows to Linux migration, including how to form an overall IT strategy for a company with an established Windows user base; explaining data migration and how to move data from a Windows installation (Office documents, address books, etc.) to a Linux desktop; improving the existing application migration from Windows to Linux; and providing end user instruction, including tactics to get the most of the Linux desktop based on the users' existing Windows knowledge. Unlike other books on the topic, Linux Business Desktop Migration for Windows Users discusses both the strategy of why Windows users would use Linux and how to actually use the Linux operating system, providing a complete beginning to end guide for moving your business over to Linux.
