New here and question about books

Just a general greeting to say hello. I'm a newbie. I've just starting using Linux with Ubuntu. Has anyone read or used any of the Ubuntu books/bibles that are out on the market?

Thanks for you input!

And welcome to LQ!

I found the Ubunut-hacks book from O'Reillys quite good.

Something like this is probably what you're looking for.

Not to sound like I'm "jumping down your throat", but it's often better to do a search before posting a question like this, as it's really a waste of bandwidth/storage space - it took me a couple of nanoseconds to find it at amazon.

Apart from that, welcome.

Hi, I'd recommend "Linux in easy steps" by Mike Mcgrath. It uses opensuse 10.0 for the examples, but the overall general Linux knowledge has been an invaluable reference for me. Best of luck
