Geeks Guide 2 from Register BooksGeeks Guide2 Although Windows 7 doesn't hit the shops until October 22, the first specialist Windows 7 books are now starting to arrive. This week's Geeks Guide focuses on the first book to the market - Microsoft Windows 7 Unleashed.

Unleashed is aimed well and truly at IT pros, power users, and those of us who like to fiddle with Windows. It comes in at over 800 pages and is jam-packed with over 31 fully illustrated topics. These topics range from being a top-up of old knowledge, for example 'Controlling Windows with Control Panel', to being aimed at particular users, such as the programming chapter: 'Scripting Windows with PowerShell'.

The book starts out with advanced customisation, then moves on to the more juicy stuff of sprucing-up Windows 7 performance and taking advantage of the Windows 7 power user tools, including Group Policies, the Registry, MMC, and the command line. Sections on Windows 7 security and networking are worth their weight in gold, while chapters on automating Windows administration and using Windows 7 as a Web server are both an interesting read and extremely handy.

Paul McFedries also returns, author of Microsoft Windows Vista Unleashed, and packs the book with expert tips, tricks, and troubleshooting techniques as past readers of the Unleashed series will have come to expect. It should be noted that this edition covers only the RC build - however, you will get a free online edition of the book written on the final product when it's available.

Unleashed is a good companion on any computer desk, especially for those looking to get the most out of the Redmond's latest OS. You can save 40% on Microsoft Windows 7 Unleashed at Register Books today, that's just £22.19 with same working day despatch of your order.
