ubuntu for non-geeks,
This review is from: Ubuntu for Non-Geeks: A Pain-Free, Get-Things-Done Guide (Paperback)
Ubuntu for Non - Geeks
A book for me a non-geek with not enough years left to become one .
So far I have just pecked at the book but the results have been startling .
I considered Ubuntu not to be compatible with ' Skype ' but the book described how to set the sound channels etc. it is now working .
How easy it was to bring up the Icon to rescue a frozen screen .
It also made me careful when buying peripherals my Canon Scanner is never going to work with Ubuntu .
Over a couple of decades the program code for the PC has been stuck together in large chunks from many sources .
This is so much so that no person or group seams to understand the whole .
In computer problem forums the multitude of answers seldom match the questions .
It is therefore very refreshing to find a book on Ubuntu 10-04 that has been correct in every detail so far .
