In Pictures has published 22 computer books under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.5 license. These books cover computer basics with several operating systems, productivity applications and basic web design and programming. These books make maximum use of images. A quote published at DesktopLinux and elsewhere explains:
Most computer books contain 50,000 to 100,000 words, but these contain only 5,000 or so. They’re great for bringing newbies up to speed.
