Ubuntu Made easy: A project-based introduction to Linux, published by No Starch Press, was written for the new Ubuntu user. The authors Rickford Grant and Phil Bull deliver on the titles promise with content that covers a comprehensive range of practical topics. This book rapidly describes practical recipes for the most common and a few less common home centric tasks.
I just got Ubuntu 9.10, and I am playing around with it. I plan to make it my main OS, and that will mean that I am going to have to learn how to use it better than I know how to do so at this point. I saw a book at the store the other day titled "A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux," which, until I looked it up today, did not know that it covered versions 8.04 and 8.10.
And so the book has finally been written about Big Data. This new book, Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work and Think - written by Oxford University professor Viktor Mayer-Schonberger and The Economist journalist Ken Cukier – is the definitive guide to a new age which, both authors promise, is going to revolutionize the way we live, work and think.
