The new edition of this best-selling guide to Ubuntu for beginners covers Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx. Topics build on each other in a way that keeps you moving forward without having to figure out how Grant makes an exercise work. The book is easy to read and relate to with step-by-step projects that have you interact with your system rather than just read about it. Grant tackles topics likely to be of interest to the average desktop user such as installing software; connecting to the Internet; working with flash drives, printers, and scanners; burning CDs and DVDs; playing audio and video; using iPods; customization; and even a bit of the command line. The beauty of Linux is that you can do just about anything with it right out of the box and Grant gets you up and fully functional in no time. From OpenOffice for wordprocessing; GIMP for photo editing; Firefox for web browsing; and other tools for enjoying multimedia or hooking up an iPod, Grant is a master at hitting the pulse of what people actually do with their computers. Based on reader feedback, this edition includes even more screenshots and visuals; more troubleshooting help; more specific tips and tricks; and a bit more technical stuff in plain English, of course.
