Not just a history,
This review is from: In the Beginning...Was the Command Line (Paperback)
at first glance one might think that this book is about the history of computers. Its not. This is socialogical study into why Microsoft are where they are, why users chose it, its competitors throughout the years and what could come next.
Its not about converting people to linux, or beOS, its about people. How and why they behave.
I like this book, the author is clear, uses interesting analogies and doesn't expect the reader to be technically minded.
