Beginning Ubuntu Linux, Sixth Edition
Please try again later. Very helpful as a beginner, highly recommend if editlon you’re new to open source software. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Was on time and met my specifications. I have not read this book and may never beginningg so, despite its being a respected imprint. So why would I then do a review, and a critical review at that? Because the subject of this edition is a particular release of Ubuntu Linux – No more updates after October.
That’s only a few months use, at best. Worse, this particular ‘Natty’ release was both problematic and controversial – check out Wikipedia, or Omgubuntu or Distrowatch. I would not recommend its use unless you know exactly what you are risking. Its instability was greatly reduced in the next release, Oneiric’s update support still expires in April next year. More, Natty Narwhal introduced the new and very controversial ‘Unity’ desktop interface in an unfinished form – see Wikipedia etc.

This ‘Unity’ is still a work in progress now a year later. We are currently expecting the release of Ubuntu Now that’s potentially more useful, isn’t it?
It also includes the current version of ‘Unity’, probably version 5. Things in this book that say ‘click here to do this’ may well be wrong, wdition should maybe say ‘press this key to do this’ on later versions with longer update support. The later versions also have added functionality missing from Natty.
There will undoubtedly be some good background information that will be in common with both versions, hence two stars but this sort of general info can most easily be found online. Finally, if you go ahead and decide to try Ubuntu as a first time Linux user, may I suggest you also try Llnux It has a more conventional desktop that most people including Linus Torvalds, creator of Linux find easier and more intuitive to use.
Linux is a grand ecology full of wonderful free software, and Ubuntu has been a star in this field for years, but everyone makes mistakes, and Natty Narwhal is not Ubuntu at its best – better to avoid it, which rather makes this edition less than useful. Not recommended in this edition – if Ubuntu is your goal watch for something that covers Ubuntu See all 4 reviews.
