    KEEP YOUR LINUX RUNNING!!

    Are you a programmer who is increasingly using Linux because of its extensibility and low cost? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Matthias Kalle Dalheimer and Matt Welsh, have done an outstanding job of writing this 5th edition of a practical guide that provides you with an overview to Linux as a desktop and a back-office system. Dalheimer and Welsh, begin by introducing you to Linux, and bring you to the point where you can do all the standard activities people do on other systems: emailing , web surfing, playing games, watching videos, and so on. Then, the authors show you how to set up your Linux system and its environment for such tasks as printing and sharing files with other systems. They also show you how to take care of your system in other ways. Next, they explore interesting advanced topics that make Linux a powerful asset, such as programming. Finally, they introduce several services and other advanced networking activities. In this most excellent book, the authors show you how you can completely change the way you work with computers by exploring a powerful and free operating system. More importantly, this book gives you some of the behind-the-scenes views, so you have an understanding of the workings of a system, even if it's not strictly necessary for casual Linux use.
