In this post I am going to share my views on the E-Book which I finished reading in the recent time; it’s titled “Introducing Windows 10 for IT Professionals, Preview Edition (ISBN: 9780735696969)” authored by Ed Bott. The author is a well known award-winning technology journalist and wrote more than 25+ books earlier on Microsoft Windows and Office.
As I updated earlier, this book is a preview, a work in progress about a work in progress, lol. But it offers a great snapshot of the Windows 10 Technical Preview as of April 2015, on the eve of the BUILD Developers’ Conference in San Francisco. By design, this preview edition provides more detailed info and good book for IT Pro's. Ed promises that he will revise and expand the content in this edition to reflect the finished product when the Windows 10 will be launched - that would be awesome for sure.
This book starts with an overview of the operating system, laying out the many changes to the user experience, and diving deep into deployment and management tools where it’s necessary. Also i can see that it's not a in-depth guide or detailed book. But it will help you to understand how and when, to incorporate Windows 10 into your enterprise, based on your own organizational requirements. That's the cool stuff with this book. If you're an IT Pro, then you will find tips and tricks about the new user experience than your users want but more about management, deployment, and security in this book. I love the following info which is discussed in detail:
- Introduction about Windows 10
- Installing and deploying Windows 10
- Deploying and managing Windows Store apps
- Web browsing and Web apps
- Windows 10 Networking
- Virtualization and remote access
- Backup and recovery options in Windows 10
- Windows 10 on Phones and small tablets
So I would recommend this book; as it's good for any IT Pro who wish to learn more about Windows 10 and it provides more detailed info, technical know-how, tips/tricks, insights. You can download a copy of the book in PDF format with Mobu and ePub formats as well.
