The Microsoft Computer Dictionary, Fifth Edition, is, in my opinion, still the best all-around computer dictionary out there.
Jerry Saperstein
Because I am one who has to know the definition for things before I use it I thought buying this would be good.

Format: Paperback
Yes, this edition of "Microsoft Computer Dictionary" has been revised and updated, when compared to the previous editions. Its 10,000 entries centered on software, hardware, and internet terms. They are easy to understand. But the fact that Microsoft stopped adding attached CD-ROMs (with this edition), without any significant price reduction is irritating. It depicts the company's insensitivity to the consumer needs.
However, this is not a bad dictionary to use, if you will tolerate this latest arrogance. It contains some new acronyms on XML, Xbox, tablet PCs, and wireless network. But, be aware that there are other computer dictionaries in the market, which offer much more for less money: including attached CD-ROMs.

I personally think that as far as Computer Dictionaries go this is an excellent one , but I must WARN YOU.... If you looking for the accompanying CD that came with all the past versions , YOUR OUT OF LUCK.... I think portability is a big factor and having the book on CD in the field is much easier than lugging the desktop book around.. EITHER "MICROSOFT" PRESS IS GETTING REALLY CHEAP OR BILL IS GETTING PARANOID OVER ALL THE LAWSUITS AND DECIDED TO SAVE SOME MONEY , I DON'T KNOW.. I DO KNOW THAT I GIVE THIS BOOK THREE STARS BECAUSE OF THIS , OTHERWISE I WOULD HAVE GIVEN IT A HIGHER RATING... So be AWARE of this.......

The 5th edition adds smart phone terms. For any writer or UI designer, this book is must. This book compliments the MS Manual of Style. It's my go-to guide when researching and selecting consistent terminology.

This will provide an incredibly for those that struggle with the terminology in the IT realm. The other thing I like is that it provides solid definitions of telecommunications and electrical/electronic related jargon.
