Linux Pocket Guide,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Linux Pocket Guide (Pocket Guide: Essential Commands) (Paperback)
For those starting out on Linux in 2010 this book may seem a little unnecessary, as many Linux distributions such as Mint work straight out of the box with little need for command line intervention. However to understand the underlying structure of Linux and to know how to create folders, delete folders, change rules, mount volumes etc the "old fashioned way" this guide will usually provide the answer. If you get the advice from the internet the book will provide an explanation of what those shell commands mean. At this price (half price) it's a bargain.
