Book excerpts:

Everyone know that Linux isn't difficult to use, especially when compared with other software and operating systems. What was needed was a guide to show people how to use it to get things done: "Oh, you want to do that? Here, type this." And that explains the premise of this book -- a hands-on guide to get things done on a Linux system.

This book consists of ways in using Linux tools and applications to get things done, hence the "recipes". Over 1,500 time-saving recipes and hints for busy modern computer users are sorted in sections by the tasks they perform or the objects they work on -- such as text, files, images, and so forth.

While this book can and should be used by the newcomer to Linux, it has enough coverage of the Linux-based system, includes enough interesting or obscure material, so that wizards, hackers, and members of the Linux Cabal may find some of it useful -- and that said users will not feel ashamed to have a copy of this book on their desk or as part of their library.

Unless otherwise specified, the book assumes that you are using the Debian GNU/Linux distribution, which, of all the major distributions, is the only one designed and assembled in the same manner that the Linux kernel and most other free software is written -- by individuals.

:) "I tried others but none showed me how to use Linux for daily use. That is where this book excels. It's packed with information that you can actually USE!"
