Great for absolute beginners,

This review is from: Crafting Digital Media: Audacity, Blender, Drupal, GIMP, Scribus, and other Open Source Tools (Expert's Voice in Open Source) (Paperback)
I wouldn't rave about this book, but it is a great introduction for the computing novice who wants to break into the world of free and open source software application for creating multimedia. Aspiring artists in both visual and aural media will find this an important stepping-stone in learning their way through those beginner baby steps. And I mean it literally starts you out with installing Ubuntu, and guides you along holding you by the hand from there. You'll be plowing out dubstep beats in RoseGarden and CD labels in Gimp before you know it.
That being said, users of a more proficient level won't be very interested in this, because it's very much "Open Source 101".
