Ways of learning about Windows 7 especially about Starter Edition.


Greetings from New Zealand.

I have just acquired my first netbook-it has Windows 7 starter loaded.

I want to learn all about Windows 7 from a beginners perspective and how I can "resolve" the limitations of the Starter Edition. I was conversant with Windows XP and regard myself as being reasonably computer literate.

So I would like to know please the following:

(1) The best books to study on Windows 7 . Are there any books on using Windows 7 starter edition please?
(2) Any tutorials on Windows 7 -ones that give a step by step tuition on the features of Windows 7. Can be on line ones and if they are free that would be good.
(3) Any dvd's or CDROM's for studying Windows 7.

(4) Any Windows 7 magazines( Guides, Companions, Handbooks etc)

In summary anything anyone can suggest that will enable me to study Windows 7 would be most appreciated.

Thank you

New Zealand

I found these books to be excellent. They may describe a few features that are not available in the Starter edition, but else, it is all the same: Windows 7: The Missing Manual - O'Reilly Media
