Over a Hundred Free Windows E-Books

No, this isn't an advertisement. (Read on!) I ran across what appears to be a great resource the other day, and thought I would share it with others. One of the minions over at Microsoft has put together a list of free e-books relating to Windows and Windows technologies. You can find his post about this resource over at the MSDN blogs, here:

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mssmallbiz/archive/2014/07/07/largest-collection-of-free-microsoft-ebooks-ever-including-windows-8-1-windows-8-windows-7-office-2013-office-365-office-2010-sharepoint-2013-dynamics-crm-powershell-exchange-server-lync-2013-system-center-azure-cloud-sql.aspx

Yes, that is an insanely long URL, but it is Microsoft. (What more needs to be said?)

A quick perusal of the e-book offerings shows that some of the e-books are probably worth downloading, while others will be of very niche interest. (Microsoft System Center or Lync, anyone?) The e-books are available in a variety of formats, including PDF, DOC, DOCX, EPUB, MOBI, and a few others.

Anyway, check it out. You might be surprised (and delighted) at what you find in this treasure trove of wide-ranging goodies.

 This tip (13177) applies to Windows 7 and 8.
