Nothing but good information to have at your hand on your phone
No cons to this quick guide
Worth downloading to your mobile phone.
Lots of concise information for what I have had to deal with.
May after I absorb information from this reference I may want more, bit not yet.
The Linux learning curve can be a barrier, but this reference should be helpful getting me past that.
Linux remains both easier and better than Windows in almost every respect. Until Windows 7 came along, there was no contest at all and this book shows why. Now, it's a bit more of a horse race.
It's complete and simple; no cons.
Were I to advise the author for a sequel or a new edition, I'd probably recommend upping the picture content and dumbing down the first 20 pages or so. It's written for a high school/college level of comprehension, which might be optimistic these days. But it's conversational and clear, so it should be easily accessible to anyone over 14. Ubuntu is probably the hottest Linux distribution these days, but it's by far not the only one. Mint is a tweaked Ubuntu and PCLinuxOS takes a different tack and is a little more usable out of the box, but both share with Ubuntu the concept that a computer is a tool for Everyman and software is to be shared. Not much to argue with, unless you're a megacorporation with profit as a reason for being. But, since corporations aren't people, who cares what they think?
Only readable online.
I hate downloading useless unreadable PDF files even when downloaded from other sources.
A useless download.
This is a handy and reasonably thorough guide with well-laid out chapters. It's not "Linux for Dummies" nor the excellent "Ubuntu For Non-Geeks". What it is, is a handy reference work to get you going: easy to follow while learning the basics.
Not as comprehensive as the above mentioned tomes. BUT still OK as a reference-to-things-forgotten and guide-to-things-to-come.
It doesn't weigh a tonne and is free. As a gentle introduction to basic Linux/Ubuntu concepts and terminology, this pocket-sized handbook suits a beginner/newbie demographic. Some users new to Linux and/or Ubuntu are, on occasion, seemingly overwhelmed by the obvious expertise of many of the Forum participants and hesitate to ask a 'stupid question' lest they be derided. For what it is, an excellent new resource which bodes well for future editions.
small short and too the point.
short on the high end but there are other resources on the net
A great short and sweet guide to using Ubuntu for the new or learning user.
Small and compact for any Ubuntu user.
Does not include "programmers edition" of C, C++, or PHP stuff. Oh well.w
Great to have!
