So I had low expectations and given I have been a Linux user for 20 years now and run a Ubuntu server farm of a couple hundred physical servers did not expect to learn much. If this is your first install of linux it might answer some questions but no more then a good youtube search. While its not a pos, I do question why you would need something like this with all the resources on the web.

I would guess it took the authors at best a few days to put together, but for $2 what do you expect.

Ubuntu keeps getting better. There are tons of well-written, helpful, free resources to help even the most timid beginner.

This is *definitely* not one of those resouces. It's poorly done--and rehashes many other much better resources and mangles them into incomprehension. The language is strange--I'm not sure, but there's an "English as a second or third language" feel to it. It's difficult to read.

Do youself a favor. Go with almost any Ubuntu manual but this one. Even at $2. Yikes.

Muktware's has done an awesome job doing this book about Ubuntu. Right off it starts with simple things like Downloading, and Burning and Ubuntu CD. Then it goes deep into SUDO commands. It also covers BIOS keys and much more. This book is for both new and old, this is a must have if you use Ubuntu.
