An excellent concept brilliantly executed. Got me up an running in minutes. My hope is that more IT stuff gets the same treatment.

Ubuntu for Non-Geeks: A Pain-free, Project-based, Get-things-done Guidebook

An excellent book. It may seem daunting at first, but this is a reference book, not a book to be read from cover to cover. I decided to move to the Ubuntu version of the Linux operating system in 2006. This book has (I'm now 82) eased the move considerably. As a pensioner of limited means, I have been able to take advantage of a free operating system and the free software that goes with it. Something I could not have afforded with the usual commercial system and software and it has allowed me to shop at Amazon.

I am familiar with Windows but this knowledge only helps in general terms when it comes to Linux and this guide is essential in getting to know Linux, how it works and where to look for further information: the author does a good job of "marketing" this imperfect system. It's not suitable for those already familiar with it.

Let's get just one thing clear first. Ubuntu Linux rocks.

As a concept it is a breath of fresh air. At last somebody realised that there is something just plain wrong with the idea of charging a lot of money for an operating system that a) often doesn't work and b) costs rather a lot.

Ubuntu is free. It makes your computer look great and do great things. As for this book. I'd say it was essential. You only have to do the maths. Compare the price of a Windows disk to the cost of an Ubuntu disk and this book.

It's written in plain English, taking you painlessly through the stages of finding your way around Ubuntu Linux.

Worth every penny.
