Linux is a really complicated and complex topics to deal on but yes after reading this book I would rather say that I have an idea now how it functions its components and and some basic knowledge to operate the Linux system. We are surrounded with plenty of modern day technology, applications and tools no wonder someday our mind cannot chew them all..I like the fact that the book covers so many topics and it gives you a very good jump start as a Linux user. The happy part is there are books like this that provide insightful generic overview of the internals and main components of the Linux systems.
A guide I think is a must to understand each and everything and what users need to know is that it is very easy to install a software on any Linux machine. New computer users will also find this very easy and less time-consuming. The operating system has been designed in order to give computer users an easy time on everything that they do, and this is just one of them. After the installation of the operating system, you can start installing any app that you will need in the use of your machine or device.
