4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful for beginners, May 31, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Beginning Ubuntu Linux: From Novice to Professional (Paperback)
I was nervous that this book would be too high level because I am a professional programmer, and am pretty technical. What I was looking for is something to give me a good base knowledge of linux. I have used linux in the past but my knowledge was spotty becuase I never read a book on it.

Some of the chapters in this book I did skip because they explain how to use certain software, which for me wasn't useful, but i can see its worth to someone switching from windows and wants to learn to use openOffice as well as MS office.

This book also had some more advanced topics in it and I feel this information made the book worth it for me. I feel it did a good job in giving me a good base knowledge of linux.

Though, as of june 1st, 2006, the included CD in the book will not be the latest Ubuntu release. Ubuntu is always free, however, and can be downloaded from their site.
