What are some good books on Fedora?


Could anyone recommend some beginner books on using Fedora as the UI, and books on the command line?

The distro homepage is always a good place to look for that. As for the rest, you can google as well as anyone else here.

ciao,

I'd like to discourage you from buying a any book on Fedora (just in case you were thinking about it) like for example this one

I'm sure it's a good book but it costs a lot of money and with the speed that Fedora implements new things in their frequent releases, some parts of the book might quickly get outdated.

fedora ???
now red hat 6 - i would go with a O'reilly book

but fedora moves so BLEEPEN fast with a new ( and sometimes VERY different version ) every 6 months .
An O'reilly book is not recommended for fedora

however the basic terminal usage has not changed

old but still works
