From the Author
Our goal in writing this book is to explain, not just define. We feel you have a right to know how your computer works, not just how to use it. Thus, we cover not only business software, personal computers, and the Internet, but also fundamentals such as computer architecture and binary arithmetic.
This edition adds over 200 new entries, including new coverage of Windows 2000 and substantially increased coverage of UNIX, networking, and Internet commerce, as well as a dozen new illustrations.
