Preface

Preface

Before you buy a car, you take it for a test drive. You do this regardless of whether the car is new or used, if you’re buying it from a dealer or from your best friend. The purpose of the test drive is to make sure you feel comfortable with the car—that you can see out of it, that it doesn’t have any glaring blind spots, that it handles well and performs to your expectations. It’s simply a wise thing to do before you commit a lot of money.

Likewise, it’s a good idea to test-drive an operating system before you switch to it full-time. The OS is at the heart of everything you do on a computer, and if you aren’t comfortable with the OS, you won’t be happy with your computer. Changing to a new operating system, even just an upgrade from one version of Windows to another, is never as simple as all the marketing ads would have you believe.
