Autorenporträt
Nicholas Petreley began his career in computing in 1983 as an Assembly-language programmer for a signal-processing research and development firm called Adaptronics, located in McLean, Virginia, and he hasn't been able to escape the field since. After getting a taste of writing as a weekly columnist for the Times in New Jersey, Nick began spending more time with the English language than with Pascal, C, C++, and the dozens of other languages that previously dominated his life.
Rezensionen
"Es ist eine der beliebtesten Beschäftigungen von Anwendern, solange es PCs gibt: das Optimieren von System und Bedienoberfläche. Spendierte man zu DOS-Zeiten dem Prompt mit Escape-Codes etwas Farbe und flocht optimierte Tools zum Verzeichniswechsel in die Programmsammlung ein, so wollen heute KDE und GNOME ausgereizt werden, und das SUSE Linux soll möglichst schneller booten. Beim Erreichen solcher Ziele hilft Linux Desktop Hacks. Von Nicholas Petreley und Jono Bacon zusammengestellt, kombiniert der Band die Erfahrungen von knapp zwei Dutzend Linux-Addicts zum Thema System- und Desktop-Optimierung für Anwender. [...]Alles in allem entpuppen sich die Linux Desktop Hacks als gelungene Anleitung, mit deren Hilfe man auch das trantütigste Linux-System zu ungeahnten Höhen auflaufen lassen kann. Als [...] Nebeneffekt eignet sich das Buch auch als Aufbaukurs für Einsteiger: Die weite Streuung der besprochenen Themen bietet einen Rundgang durch alle Bereiche eines Linux-Rechners und macht so den Leser mit den grundlegenden Abläufen vertraut." - Jörg Luther, Linux-User, 07/2005
