In the midst of the current financial crunch, the popular, free Linux distribution Ubuntu has never looked more attractive. If you've considered switching, a free copy of the Ubuntu Pocket Guide is the perfect place to start. Written by Keir Thomas, author of Ubuntu Kung Fu, Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference covers all the beginner-to-expert knowledge you'll need to make the move to Ubuntu.
We've featured excerpts from Thomas' Ubuntu Kung Fu two times at Lifehacker, and the Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference offers the same level of Ubuntu expertise to anyone interested in or already living the Ubuntu life.
- Focuses on core competencies and background knowledge needed to be an expert Ubuntu user;
- Readable, accessible, and easy to understand—even if you've never used Linux before;
- 100% new and original! Written from the ground-up to cover Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10.
Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference is available from Amazon, but—best of all—the book is also available as a free PDF download from the official web site. Can't go wrong with free.
