5.0 out of 5 stars Pefect for anyone getting started with Ubuntu November 23, 2011
By Curtis
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, I don't understand the 3 prior reviews, they seem to be people who enjoy making negative remarks instead of actually looking at who the audience of a book is and providing insight to potential buyers about what they will find in the book.

This book is an entry level guide for getting into Ubuntu system administration, as the descriptions says. I remember the first time I installed Slackware Linux on my Packard Bell 486 with 90+ floppy disks in 1994 and unfortunately, the installation screens on any version of Linux haven't come much further.

Ubuntu is the first Linux that makes a concerted effort to focus on the user, and if users download a copy of Ubuntu, they need something to walk them through the install, setup, patching, and administration process. The skill level of an Ubuntu user is generally going to match up nicely with this book. Yes, you can find out most of this information on the Internet if you spend days/weeks searching, but why not just drop .99 and have it all in one spot to refer to on your Kindle app?

Ronald's book does a great job of walking a user through the ins and outs of not only HOW to do all of the tasks associated with installation and system administration, but they WHYs as well.

Technical jargon that may not be familiar to new system administrators is explained, full color screen shots are given for reference, and examples of package installation and removal are given.

For 99 cents I think this book is well worth it, especially if you are new to Ubuntu or Linux in general and want to have a guide to assist you in installing and setting up an Ubuntu Linux installation. If you are looking for a deep dive into Ubuntu or you are a seasoned professional that already has Ubuntu installed and are looking to slice and dice it 6 ways to Sunday, look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ubuntu overview January 2, 2012
By Mark
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ron's writing style is concise and accurate. Anyone who choses Ubuntu for their desktop does so for a reason... it just works without getting in the way. (very Mac-like, if I dare say so) If you want to do more than just the menu choices, this book is a good read for terminal commands and Ubuntu installation. Some topics are a bit light... (netstat, arp, ifconfig, and troubleshooting) but Ubuntu has plenty of user support and manpages for that.

For me, Ubuntu doesn't need any more of a printed manual than what Ron offers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic overview only November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wasn't expecting much since it's a very cheap book. Very basic overview of the Linux system admin in Ubuntu, I think I finished the book in about 10 minutes or so. I believe there are web searches that would provide the same information as the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars not worth it October 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
don't judge a book by its cover, this cover on this book looks good, but inside there's very little information, useless material anyone can put together in no time. the author don't seem to knowledge either. this is a waste of money ever for 99 cents.
