Books to learn Fedora 20.


Hi friends,
I am new to Fedora so I tried to find some books to learn Fedora 20, but I came across books about much older versions (fedora 7). Can somebody tell me any book from which I can learn fedora 20?

As far as I remember a new version of Fedora gets released every 6 months sometimes bringing a lot of changes. For that reason, it's not viable to release 'printed' documentation as it would get out of date very quickly. If you want to learn Fedora, use online documentation. For example
https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/index.html
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs_...rd=DocsProject

Another great source of information is the Fedora section of this forum or FedoraForum.

as an example fedora 20 is still using "yum" as the update manager
that will CHANGE in 21 or 22

Books are all fine and good but real world experience is better. Just start using the system, break it on purpose and the like. With google you will learn tons very quickly. Also by doing this you don't take the chance of something in the book having been changed, happens all the time.

Hello, Mathlover

As noted above, working directly with any Linux distro and experimenting with it is the best way to learn it. You can get all the tips you need from direct online searches. Hard copy books on Linux are great, but these days most of them become outdated within just a few months. Let us know which route you take and how it goes...
