With an influx of first-time Linux users comes the need for guidance laid out in simple everyday terms. The Linux for Dummies series has provided the backbone for beginning Linux user information for years. This book expands on this history by providing up-to-date guidance and information about the current popular Linux distributions. Linux for Dummies, 9th Edition focuses on two types of Linux distributions popular with beginners - the Ubuntu LiveCD distribution (popular with Linux enthusiasts), and the gOS Linux distribution (pre-installed on Everex computers that can be purchased from major retailers). However, it also provides information about the full Fedora Linux distribution, for readers who wish to move up to a more robust Linux environment, or just compare their current Linux distribution to a full distribution. Series features: Linux For Dummies, 9th Edition, is written in the friendly, humorous, and easy-to-understand style that is the hallmark of the ...For Dummies brand.
