Product Description

Product Description

Curious about Ubuntu, but not sure where to start? Start here: "Ubuntu: An Absolute Beginner's Guide", by author Courtney Loo, is the latest free guide from MakeUseOf and will teach you everything you need to know about Ubuntu in easy-to-understand language.

Ubuntu is a free/libre, open-source computer operating system with 20 million users worldwide. But it's also so much more than that: it is an ethos, a collaborative project and, first and foremost, Ubuntu is a community of people.

If you're reading this guide, you're probably interested in moving away from proprietary operating systems such as Windows and Mac OS X; perhaps you've already installed Ubuntu on your computer but are not sure where to start.

Migrating to a new operating system can be daunting, especially when faced with unfamiliar words like 'FLOSS', 'command line interface' and 'kernel'. Many people are intimidated by the technical jargon of a non-commercial operating system and believe it's too advanced for them.

Well, that is simply not true.

Ubuntu is easy to install and simple to use. Best of all: it's completely FREE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ubuntu Linux for Kindle to read.! 6 Mar 2013

Ubuntu Linux for Kindle to read.!

Installed Ubuntu 12.10 as a dual boot, and was absolutely smitten by everything...

This book is very easy to follow, even for non-book readers too, you must have the interest in the NEW Ubuntu OS,

or else you will just be wasting you time, - I've seen books at £18 here on Amazon and this ones the best TBH.

I my humble opinion. so you download the FREE Kindle app for PC, laptop or Android too.

The New "Linux Ubuntu 12.10", has lots of support throughout the net, so please do not worry, its

64 // 32 bit & rock solid. Hope this Review HELP's a little... "Its a Great way to make friends too."
