Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference

Although it’s been awhile I know about this book, I decided to download it today. At first I didn’t notice that this book is available for free download :D. The PDF version of this book is free to download and you can buy the print version from Amazon.com

The contents of this 152 pages book are:

Chapter 1: Installing Ubuntu
Chapter 2: Configuring Ubuntu
Chapter 3: Getting to grips with the desktop
Chapter 4: Users and the filesystem
Chapter 5: Hands-on at the command-line
Chapter 6: Software Management
Chapter 7: Securing the system

For you who interested to download this book, you can go directly to Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference website. User from Indonesia can download faster from FOSS-ID website. But it’s best if you download directly from their website to get the most recent version.

At this moment I also like to thanks the author of this book, Keir Thomas  for making this book free to download :)
