Excellent for beginners,

This review is from: Running Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional (Paperback)
This book is an excellent guide to learning Windows 2000 Professional. (The other reviewer forgets that Active Directory only ships with the server edition, not the pro edition, so his criticism is not entirely valid!) I was a long-time Mac user and had not felt very comfortable with the Win98/2k interface until I read this book, which covers every aspect of using the latest Microsoft OS -- how to navigate the My Computer/Windows Explorer maze, how to best use Internet Explorer and other bundled software, how to get on the Internet quickly, etc. Again, the emphasis is for the novice user, not advanced/power user or adminstrator. (For the latter I recommend "Windows 2000: the Complete Reference", which covers both Pro and Server editions of the OS.)
I benefited from this book tremendously as I have fallen in love with the Win98 user interface -- I've come to like it more than the Mac interface. :) Another excellent volume is the "Windows 2000 Step-by-Step," which is more suitable for people who are new to computing or fear Windows tremendously...
