Beginning Ubuntu Linux
Beginning Ubuntu Linux: From Novice to Professional, Third Edition is the update to the best-selling first book introducing Ubuntu Linux. Adapted from Keir Thomas' best-selling "Beginning SUSE Linux: From Novice to Professional" (Apress, 2005), Keir sets out to guide readers through the most commonly desired yet confusing concepts and tasks confronted by new Linux users. Purposely focused on end users to satisfy the growing interest in migrating away from windows to the increasingly mature Linux desktop platform, Beginning Ubuntu Linux serves as a guide to a rapid and transparent familiarization of those features most treasured by general and power desktop users alike.
