5.0 out of 5 stars Ubuntu Hacks: The best collection of tips for GNU/Linux, 5 Sep 2006
This review is from: Ubuntu Hacks: Tips & Tools for Exploring, Using, and Tuning Linux (Paperback)
A book with quick tips and short Howto's

The best collection of tips for GNU/Linux.

(MUGARA, Macintosh User Group Aragón/Spain)

Ubuntu is a distro that is easy to obtain and install, but most of the hacks in this book can be applied to any GNU/Linux installation.

There are immediate fixes and solutions for the usual problems encountered by home and business users, whether they come from Windowsor Mac. For example, there are solutions for the use of wireless devices, input-output devices, PDA,s (Palm or WindowsMobile), as well as sections on what to do if something goes wrong.

There is continuity between the chapters, which allows the user to learn gradually about "hacking" the system. It,s not just a "list of tips from A to Z".

There are chapters devoted to security and the use of multimedia no only reproducing multimedia elements, but also creating and editing them.

In short, if your problem has happened to someone, this book has the solution.
