Ubuntu : Linux facile e per tutti by Rickford Grant( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Italian and Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ubuntu è definita come la distribuzione Linux ideale per i principianti ed è, senza alcun dubbio, quella meno adatta agli 'smanettoni'. Persino il suo nome rispecchia questo stile: si tratta infatti di un termine di origine africana che significa "umanità verso gli altri" e questo concetto si adatta perfettamente all'approccio di Rickford Grant all'insegnamento di Linux. Ricco di utili suggerimenti e trucchi, il libro è un manuale basato su progetti guidati, utile per affrontare il primo impatto con Ubuntu per tutti coloro che, pur interessati, sono presi dal panico al solo sentire nominare Linux
