Absolute Beginners Only,
This review is from: Official Ubuntu Book, The (3rd Edition) (Paperback)
Well if you are wanting to know the entire history line of ubuntu rather than working the OS then this book is for you. I know that if I had known that over half the book was the history of Ubuntu I wouldn't have thought of buying it. Think this book will help you figure out a difficult hardware problem like wireless think again, rather it will tell you to buy a card that is compatible which is downright saddening. Ubuntu Forums has 20 times the info one would need to fix problems. If though you are a first time Ubuntu user or want to try it out buy it up. It comes with a Live/Install disk so you can test drive the OS.
