Maybe that was the one that I bought.  It was so out of date that I had to 
throw it away.  A sheer waste of money, despite all his efforts.  A situation 
like that wouldn't help the popularity of kde.

Why are there all those books about Windows OSs?  Well, look how long each one 
is around, virtually without change.  It's a totally different ball-game.

Much more useful would be a simplistic introduction that tells the potential 
user where to find up-to-date information.
