    thanks you my dear from my deep of my soul thanks again…………….

  2. Patricio Chiani says:

    Es una verdad que un gran número de usuarios en el mundo provienen de América Latina, por lo que sería un gran paso en Microsoft poner toda esta literatura excelente en idioma regional (español). Gracias.

  3. tolu bello says:

  5. Shivanand Arur says:

    Thank you very much Microsoft…. These e-books are very valuable… Thank you

  6. David K says:

    I downloaded 4 books from this list. Out of this four no book was offered in epud or Mobi. So, what exactly did you mean by saying "Many of our free ebooks are offered in three formats" ???

  7. Hugo Darino says:

    If you read the actual links listed above, you will see that "in the middle" they provide a link to the e-PUB and MOBI version of the downloads. Try it again and you will see what he means.

    As an example…here is quote from "Programming Windows Phone 7"…'And, as of August 1, 2011, you can now download an EPUB version here and a MOBI version here. The 'EUB version' contains the hyperlink and so does the MOBI version.

    I never believed that I would live up to the day when microsoft releases their books for free. very happy about this guys. Another way to promote great MS products and get more educated system admins so that people stop thinking that windows is "bad" as this is usually due to silly and uneducated system admins who just learned how to click here and there, without the understanding of the technologies. again THANK YOU !!! 🙂

  242. The best post from Microsoft Press Blog ever! Thanks for sharing!

  243. Oliverio Miguel says:

    Es un retraso el no ofrecer este contenido en Español, francamente decepcionado. Linux ofrece documentación completa y traducida a diversos idiomas, en cambio Microsoft que se supone que tiene más influencia, se queda muy por detrás de la carrera de aprendizaje Informático.

    Por lo demás muchas gracias

    Please note that the URL for the "Introducing Windows Azur" ebook is incorrect as it currently points to a "C" drive location.  It is possible to modify the URL for one of the other publications to access this ebook, however I would like to suggest/recommend that this URL be corrected for the benefit of others please.

    Thanks! 🙂

  264. Edwin Hqz says:

    Es una idea muy buena, amigos de Microsoft pongan en su agenda que la mayor parte de latinos nos gustaría que saquen ediciones en Español y con eso nos ayudarían muchísimo para poder estar al dia con los cambios de tecnología, ya que en ingles se dificulta para muchos de nosotros

  265. Raghu says:

    thanks for Microsoft team

  302. Jerocis says:

    I've been a fan of ebooks since the days of .lit files and Microsoft Reader on my Dell Axim. However, I only use ebooks for fiction, or items consisting only of text. Maybe there's something wrong with me, but for technical material (anything containing charts, graphs, images, code samples, etc.) I prefer an actual book. Still, this free library is a very nice resource. Thank you.

  303. Olyana Smirnova says:

    Thank you Microsoft for helpful books! Even have a choice of formats to read them. Would be better if they was available in multiple languages, but whatever, I'm not even dreaming about that they would ever be in russian 😀 Great thanks anyway!
