The Root of All Evil

Until seeing this book I'd not been familiar with the 'User-Friendly' cartoon strip. Often labelled as 'Dilbert for Geeks' this anti-Microsoft pro Linux strip (with Star Trek influences) explores day-to-day life in an internet service provider via a collection of odd-balls and other characters such as 'Dust Puppy'.

I suspect this will strike a nerve in any IT teacher who has ever worked in the industry. This book should amuse and may include some useful teaching points for the more oddball IT teacher.
