Excellent coverage of Ubuntu. Easy enough to understand. Material applies to all of Ubuntu's flavors. Extra web material and DVD are definite pluses. I'm enjoying this big book and learning a lot too!
While I realize that neither the book nor the Ubuntu OS are intended for the hardcore Linux admi, the book falls short of providing the sort of info that users who advance beyond the newbie stage might need. For instance, even a novice Linux users is likely to need or want to add an external or flash drive, and the book doesn't even mention how to format an additional disk. And what is there could be much better indexed.
almost nothing on the networking section.
If your new to Ubuntu or a pro this book is a valuable resource.
