Great book for any linux newbie, covers various subjects.,
This review is from: Running Linux (Paperback)
Well, this is a great book to start with. Any linux newbie will surely appreciate the amount of topics covered in it. But this book is not ment to be a problem solver or a setup guide. It's main focus is to explain in brief the concept of linux, setting it up and various other topics, including examples how to do it. Some will find lack of in-depth information somewhat annoying, but most will find it usefull as a general purpose guide. If you're new to linux, this is THE book you'll want to read. And, it is not distribution-specific, so whatever linux distro you're using, you can't go wrong with this book.
