Charles River Media (2006): Windows To Linux Business Desktop MigrationWindows to Linux Migration

Linux has established itself as the fastest growing server platform and is poised to capitalize on its success in the enterprise data center to become a formidable desktop operating system. One area that potential desktop Linux users find lacking is that of information on the capabilities of Linux as a desktop operating system in comparison to Microsoft Windows. Windows to Linux Business Desktop Migration explores the advantages of the Linux desktop and forewarns of the possible pitfalls associated with a Linux desktop migration. The reader will benefit from the tips included in the text to realize the goals of increased productivity and better value from their desktop computing investment. In order to make this possible the book focuseson four main points: Explaining the factors involved in a Windows to Linux migration, including how to form a strategy for a Windows dependent organization, including advice on what open source back office software could potentially augment the new desktop solution;Advising IT managers on data migration strategies for critical information (Office documents, bookmarks, address books, etc.);Improving the overall stability, security and productivity of their desktop environment by utilizing Linux’ extensive management capabilities and permissions; Providing recommendations for open source applications that can be used in lieu of commercial applications on both Windows and Linux with consideration given as to how to maintain equivalent or better experience. Unlike other Linux desktop books,Windows to Linux Business Desktop Migration discusses both the strategy of how Windows users would implement the Linux operating system along with tactics to avoid pitfalls during the migration.
