No, this isn't an advertisement. (Read on!) I ran across what appears to be a great resource a while back, forgot about it for a time, ran across it again, and finally 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:

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, 8, and 10.

Nice link, except it's dated 2017. Is it still available?
