Linux is cool not just because it’s free and open-source, more often than not, that’s because it’s so powerful. For example, it is used to build large servers with high performance and high stability; to make the old computers bloom; as desktop or office operating system for individual users or enterprise users, and more. I think any users who are interested in computers, somewhat get tired of Windows, and want to try some new OS, they may want to begin to reach the mysterious Linux operating system. But if you want to make learning Linux easy, you really need a good book for the level of beginners.

Linux All-in-One For Dummies consists of 8 relatively independent mini books (listed below) which cover Linux’s all aspects of basic knowledge (including topics like: Linux basics, desktop interaction, network issues, Internet services, system administration, security, server, programming, scripting and how to pass the Level-1 Linux certification). It is specially written for any primary and intermediate Linux users to get started with, in friendly and easy-to-understand (dummy style) language.

As a complete guide and reference to multiple major Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Fedora, Linux Mint, openSUSE, and Mandriva Linux), Linux All-in-One For Dummies has everything a beginner needs to take your skills to the next level. For instance: start with the basics of Linux, how to manage files under Linux’s file system, how to keep Linux system secure, how to install, set up and configure Linux’s network and hardware, know something about GNOME desktop, start to write shell scripts or programs in Linux.
