I just ran across news that Ubuntu Kung Fu is Shipping and happened to look at the cover. As a cat lover and technical book author myself, I felt a little slighted.

ubuntu tips

That's right. Keir Thomas got a kitten on his book.

That kicks ass.

But even better, Ubuntu Kung Fu (PDF and printed) sounds like a real winner for day-to-day Ubutnu users. As the marketing blurb says:

Award-winning Linux author Keir Thomas gets down and dirty with Ubuntu to provide over 300 concise tips that enhance productivity, avoid annoyances, and simply get the most from Ubuntu. You'll find many unique tips here that can't be found anywhere else. You'll also get a crash course in Ubuntu's flavor of system administration. Whether you're new to Linux or an old hand, you'll find tips to make your day easier.

In other words, it's a book that nearly everyone using Ubuntu could benefit from. I'm hoping to grab a copy shortly. Have a listen to Keir Thomas on Ubuntu Kung Fu in this week's Pragmatic Podcast.

Also available on Amazon.com.

As a former Ubuntu user I plan to get back to the OS soon, maybe on top of the free VMWare ESX software (hardware allowing ;-)
