An excellent book for anyone wanting to tune and explore Ubuntu Linux. This first edition is getting a little dated now; buy the latest edition! ( )

I bought this book because I am in the process of switching from Windows to Linux. I am doing it with the Ubuntu version. This book is filled with a lot of good solid info on how to migrate from windows and how to tweak and get more out of Ubuntu. Some instructions start with assumption that you know how to use the terminal command line in linux. But if you are a patient & careful reader you dig out how to get it done. Overall a very helpful resource book. ( )

I like the "hacks" series of books, and this is a good one. Many of the tips are quite elementary though. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0596527209, Paperback)

Ubuntu Linux--the most popular Linux distribution on the planet--preserves the spirit embodied in the ancient African word "ubuntu," which means both "humanity to others" and "I am what I am because of who we all are." Ubuntu won the "Linux Journal" Reader's Choice Award for best Linux distribution and is consistently the top-ranked Linux variant on DistroWatch.com. The reason this distribution is so widely popular is that Ubuntu is designed to be useful, usable, customizable, and always available for free worldwide.

Ubuntu Hacks is your one-stop source for all of the community knowledge you need to get the most out of Ubuntu: a collection of 100 tips and tools to help new and experienced Linux users install, configure, and customize Ubuntu. With this set of hacks, you can get Ubuntu Linux working exactly the way you need it to. Learn how to: Install and test-drive Ubuntu Linux. Keep your system running smoothly Turn Ubuntu into a multimedia powerhouse: rip and burn discs, watch videos, listen to music, and more Take Ubuntu on the road with Wi-Fi wireless networking, Bluetooth, etc. Hook up multiple displays and enable your video card's 3-D acceleration Run Ubuntu with virtualization technology such as Xen and VMware Tighten your system's security Set up an Ubuntu-powered server

Ubuntu Hacks will not only show you how to get everything working just right, you will also have a great time doing it as you explore the powerful features lurking within Ubuntu.

""Put in a nutshell, this book is a collection of around 100 tips and tricks which the authors choose to call hacks, which explain how to accomplish various tasks in Ubuntu Linux. The so called hacks range from downright ordinary to the other end of the spectrum of doing specialised things...More over, each and every tip in this book has been tested by the authors on the latest version of Ubuntu (Dapper Drake) and is guaranteed to work. In writing this book, it is clear that the authors have put in a lot of hard work in covering all facets of configuring this popular Linux distribution which makes this book a worth while buy.""
