Great Book for New Linux Users


I've been looking to try out Linux for years. Most Linux books talk about servers and commands. This book gets right to the things that real people want to do. I loved that the chapters were organized by stuff like Getting Email, Browsing Online, Playing Music, etc. It makes it easy to turn to right what I need to know.

The introductions to the chapters are funny and the book never really gets dull. the author looks at the boring system parts like most of us would and helps get through it. I loved this book and am now running fedora core 3.

"These fragments we have shored against our ruin"


The enormous richness and complexity of this book combined with a warm and human sense of humour will remain in the mind of the reader for a long time. Definitely an all time classic.
