What’s in the eBook?

The 2019 edition of The Ultimate Linux Newbie Guide contains the latest, freshest version of the guide, totally revamped for 2019. It’s ideal to download and read in your own time, perhaps on a Kindle, iPad or even in paper format. Doing so means it’ll be easy to read along at your own pace, especially when it comes to installing Linux.

The guide helps you understand what Linux is, why you’d even want to consider switching from Windows or Mac to Linux. Then it goes on to discover ‘distributions’ of Linux and making the right choice for you. After that, it’s time to install Linux. The guide steps you through a typical installation of Linux on a PC that has Windows already installed. It assumes that you want to keep all your existing files (and Windows, just in case!). Finally, the rest of the guide is all about using Linux on a daily basis as well as introducing you to the plethora of excellent free software titles that often beat their commercial, proprietary counterparts.

The ebook also has some bonus content, which is selected from the ULNG site.
