X Power Tools
This book puts you in charge of the most flexible and adaptable graphical interface in the computer industry. The X Window System underlies graphical desktops on Linux and Unix systems, and supports advanced features of modern graphics cards. More people use the X Window System than ever before, but there are few books about X in print. X Power Tools fills that hole with the most practical and up-to-date information available.
What people are saying - Write a review
Although this may be a well-written book full of useful information, it is clearly out-of-date. The unfortunate fact is that computer books are only current at the time they are written.
I would suggest that you look for documentation on-line first. If you need a textbook on Linux, try to get one that is no more than one year old.
In my opinion, the suggest price of $17.87 is also ridiculous for an old computer Ebook. I could possibly understand paying five or ten dollars for a print copy to pay for printing costs. One or two dollars might be appropriate for the Ebook to cover hosting and transactional costs. If you have not recouped the costs for a book of this sort within one year, you are in the wrong business.
