Get Windows 8 for Dummies: Pocket Edition e-book for free

I’ve made no secret of my lack of excessive fondness for Windows 8. I think unless you’re getting it on a tablet or smartphone, the OS is best avoided.

That said, plenty of users have no doubt taken advantage of Microsoft’s upgrade offer, and plenty more will end up with Windows 8 on their next desktop or laptop. And I think it’s a safe bet that most of those users will need some help learning to navigate, operate, and, ultimately, tolerate 8.

To that end, Dell is offering a free copy of “Windows 8 for Dummies: Dell Pocket Edition” in e-book form. All you do is complete a short form and bam, you’ve got a universally compatible PDF.

Update: Well, because the universe hates me, Dell took down the link shortly after I posted. This was perhaps another promotion that wasn’t intended for the general public. Luckily, the link below still works, at least for now.

Update No. 2: Dell got in touch and told me they reactivated the link! However, they also asked that I remove the direct-download link below, which I’ve done.

Actually, if you’d rather skip the form, you can (That said, Dell is giving away something of value here, so the fair thing is to give them the bits of marketing info they’re asking for.)

This 147-page guide covers everything from the new Start screen to the traditional desktop to my favorite chapter of all: “10 Things You’ll Hate About Windows 8 (and How to Fix Them).” And, of course, it’s written in that friendly, conversational “Dummies” style.

Even if you don’t have Windows 8 now, chances are good you’ll take advantage of it somewhere down the road. So grab this handy e-book and keep it for when that joyful day arrives.
