Full of tips, tricks, and helpful pointers, Ubuntu for Non-Geeks, 5th Edition is a hands-on, project-based guide to Ubuntu, a completely free Linux operating system. Authors Rickford Grant and Phil Bull tackle topics of interest to the everyday user, such as customizing the desktop, installing new programs, connecting to the Internet, playing audio and video, 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 the authors get new users up and running in no time. Readers will learn to edit photos and videos, browse the Web, sync their iPod or iPad, and more, all with freely available tools. This edition includes an overview of the new Unity desktop, troubleshooting and security hints, and how to make Ubuntu and your Windows or Mac computers play together nicely. Everything is explained step-by-step in plain English, perfect for the non-geek. Praised by Cory Doctorow, co-editor of Boing Boing, as "a fast, crystal-clear topical tour of the amazing collective accomplishment embodied in Ubuntu."
