Windows Vista, the new operating system from Windows, was released today
and for the publishing industry that means it is time to sell lots of new computer books about how to best use Windows Vista. A book by Microsoft Windows experts Brian Livingston and Paul Thurrott called Windows Vista Secrets
(Wiley) has become the bestselling Windows Vista book on Amazon.com.
"With all of the talk around Windows' latest release, it's clear that people want to know what they're getting into," said the book's co-author, Brian Livingston. "Vista is definitely a big improvement over previous software, but it helps to know how to make it work best for you."
Windows Vista Secrets
includes hidden Vista commands that can enhance and simplify how users experience Vista. For those not buying a new PC the book also instructs consumers on how to install Vista while preserving Windows XP on their computers before completely converting to the new operating system.
Brian Livingston is the editorial director of WindowsSecrets.com
and Paul Thurrott is editor of Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows
so the two authors keep readers informed about Windows products on a daily basis.
