Overview

Completely free and highly robust, Ubuntu has the power to bring the Linux desktop to the masses. INTRODUCING UBUNTU: DESKTOP LINUX is your key to learning this new, user-friendly, and free alternative to Windows. Think of it as a personal tutorial, a one-on-one class with an expert user of Ubuntu. It begins by helping you choose the right Ubuntu for you (yes, there's more than one), and guides you through installing Ubuntu, managing the desktop, installing printers, and getting online. From there, the book moves on to describe how to perform everyday tasks under Ubuntu, such as sending and receiving e-mail, playing MP3s and movies, messaging with friends, working with digital images, and much more. There's plenty of information on how to use OpenOffice.org programs such as Writer, Calc, and Impress as well. While this is an excellent book for the general consumer, the book also addresses business-oriented users of Ubuntu for the small to medium-sized business (SMB) market through the use of sidebars. This is the only "up-and-running" guide to Ubuntu you will ever need.
