Only time I've ever used an apple is to browse the book collection at the uni library. And only then a couple of times that I couldn't find an open PC. I am a windows power user, so general computing terms are familiar to me. Effectively zero linux experience. So I think I need a book that starts with "here is the power button" but isn't insulting about it. Or is that a contradiction?? I also know, from linux book searching, that I don't need a "Learn OS X" that assumes I've used apples prior to OS X. I found it infuriating that the only books on linux I could find at the local bookstore assumed I was switching from Unix. You'd think that the Apple "Switch" site would have some links for folks such as I, but they don't that I saw. Any and all help, advice, suggestions greatly appreciated. I don't think I've looked forward to something with this much mixed excitement and apprehension since the puddlejumper flight to Ft. Sill for basic training.
