    Sample Chapter: Chapter Three: Using Ubuntu on the Desktop

    Available for standard PCs, more advanced and current 64-bit computers, as well as for the ARM platform, typically found in cell phones and smaller devices, and this book details all of them. The first chapter discusses the basic philosophy, design goals, and background on open source and Linux, and the role that it plays with Ubuntu. More experienced users would probably skim or skip entirely these first few pages.

    The second chapter takes the reader through downloading and installation from DVD or USB key. Installation is a breeze, and this book takes the administrator through every step
