TechBookReport on 'Introducing Ubuntu'
Author: JT Smith
Like it or not, Desktop Linux has yet to really take off in the way that some in the open source community had hoped. Whereas Firefox, for example, has achieved widespread adoption, by and large interest in Linux tends to be restricted to those users who have already achieved a degree of technical competence.For the vast majority of users, there's no understanding that a PC or laptop can run something other than Windows (you mean there are alternatives, wowÃ¢â¬Â¦). Ubuntu Linux is one of the best hopes for a Desktop Linux for the masses. 'Introducing Ubuntu: Desktop Linux' is expressly designed for the novice looking at Linux for the first time.
