The e-book does not get up good as a 9.10 intro both. The writer has reused previous pre-9 screenshots and outdated pre-9 content material, and bankruptcy sections written through 4 varied authors are only slapped jointly in a fashion that regularly makes for terribly uneven studying. i might be embarrassed to be linked to this booklet as writer or editor, and the packaging of this product makes me embarrassed for the complete advertising career! The authors all appear completely useful and that i hate to injure their royalties with this overview yet this booklet is a rip-off and that i wager they'd little or no to do with this variation.

On the final web page they give you a substitute disc - A disc! during this century! - for an improve to Ubuntu 10.04 and different software program all of that are downloaded in other places at no cost, besides a PDF rfile on what is new in 10.04 while on hand. so far as i will be able to inform it is June 2010 and that PDF remains to be no longer on hand, yet perhaps that is simply because they have not answered to my customer support request. The autoreply says they bought my message 3 WEEKS in the past. this entire DVD by way of mail concept is simply a trick to get humans on their mailing record, and i am unlikely to chew. They ship the PDF electronically to humans outdoors america, so I contacted the writer (InformIT / Pearson schooling / SAMS) soliciting for the PDF in simple terms simply because i do not wish the DVD, they usually did not also have the courtesy to answer me!

Not worthy some time, untrustworthy writer, low-quality e-book. This one goes again to Amazon.
