If you want to know how to install Ubuntu on your computer, this is the book. Simple, clear language which goes into the basics of getting Ubuntu onto your computer. It describes how to set up a dual boot (so computer can run either Windows or Ubuntu - assuming Windows is on your computer of course) so you can choose which operating system to run when you switch it on. Or how to replace your Windows completely with Ubuntu. I had an older and slower computer which crashed on the Windows 10 update (from Windows 7). I thought to do a double boot set up on that computer, but got stuck and let Ubuntu replace my Windows. With this book, I might have succeeded with the baffling (to me) partition set up for root, swap, etc. (That's why I let the installer just replace the whole Windows). Having got there, I was looking (on my other Windows computer) for an ebook about Ubuntu. This is a simple, short, easy to understand book. There's no command line jargon, this book won't make me a Linux Ubuntu guru, but with the system running, it's enough to make let me understand how to get Ubuntu installed. If you want more than that, this book won't give it, but it says what it does in the title. Helps you get from Windows to Ubuntu, and it does that very well indeed.
