Ubuntu Pocket Reference for Free

Please follow and like us:

For non-power users (for Linux) out there, here is a pocket reference book for Ubuntu available for free download from the following website. Like the Ubuntu operating system, the book is totally free (no strings attached)

The book covers Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 versions so it is pretty up to date. The topics include:
  • Installing and configuring Ubuntu
  • Desktop Guide
  • Users and Filesystem
  • Hands on at the command line
  • Software Management
  • Securing the System
An average Joe can really benefit from this book. Granted, most of this information is already available in the Linux help files and online forums/blogs. But still, it is a nice handy book to have lying around in your office/home.

I see an enormous benefit for this book in office environments where ordinary users are not savvy enough to go online and would prefer a reference manual handy.

For techies out there, it might not be the best read, but definitely a good gift to give along with the OS to your newly initiated friends to Linux.

You can download your free copy from: http://www.ubuntupocketguide.com

Or if you prefer a printed edition, then visit our Amazon Webstore to purchase a copy.

    I think it would be more useful to cover customizing the Ubuntu CD since it provides a better alternative to businesses that want to use a product with corporate liability.
