A great book that teaches you about Ubuntu Linux, the most popular freeware operating system! Ubuntu was designed to be a free alternative to Microsoft Windows and if you re excellent with computers, you can modify the entire system to fit exactly your needs! This book tells you all you need to know about Ubuntu, like how to make Windows and Ubuntu play nice with each other and share their space on the hard drive. Don't read the book if you are not a tech enthusiast for it's extremely long and don't try anything in it if you have never installed an operating system before!!!
