Product Description

About the Author

Emilio Raggi lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and works in one of the biggest companies in the country. He was very much a Windows fanboy, until one day, he had to manage a Ubuntu desktop deployment. He was highly qualified as a Microsoft implementer, holding certificates as an MCP and MCSE, and worked as a consultant for a Microsoft partner. Still, Ubuntu had its charms and won him over. He is also an avid student of philosophy.

First tried Ubuntu 6.xx, then 8.04 and now 9.10 and find I use it now more than Windows. But I have to explain Ubuntu to my grand children and answer their questions when they use my computer so I need some technical appreciation. This is it. The book is about 43 mm thick but it is easy to read, lets just hope it sinks in!

I find it useful, it gives a detailed instruction for doing anything and sticks to the graphic user interface when it can but also gives the same attention to detail if a command line operation is needed.

I've made notes of the parts that I use but I am also going to read it from cover to cover again. I ought to contribute to Ubuntu and I hope this will give me the confidence to offer my services.

I bought this book after taking the 3rd edition from my university library. It contains a good number of updates and alterations of certain chapters from the previous edition(s).

Personally I found the vast majority of it too beginner level - but this is in no way an issue, it just means that I might find more use in the intermediate level books as only chapters 4 and 7 were/are of use to me! And if you are indeed a beginner to Ubuntu (which as linux operating system is very ideal for beginners!) you will find this book of much use!

Enjoy.

If you want to know how to use and get the best out of Ubuntu, then this is the book for you. It leads you by the hand through setup, file system, applications and tuning your system. Very easy to follow and understand. Highly recommended.

I found this book easy to use to get me started with Linux. I now have a Laptop running Linux and as this is very old I am amazed at how fast it is.
