"Judging by the size of the book though, I'd have to assume that
Sobell has it covered as well. But does he? Unlike Godzilla, size
doesn't always matter. Let's have a look.
"A casual viewing of the book's back cover tells the reader that
they can expect to find out just about everything there is to know
about anything they can do with Ubuntu. While most folks think of
Ubuntu as the most "desktop user" friendly version of Linux, and
the most likely contender to chip away at Microsoft Windows' death
grip on the home desktop market, there's a lot more to consider. At
least according to the blurb I read, the server aspects of Ubuntu
are well covered here. The list includes Apache, DNS, LDAP, NIS,
and Samba, and that's just for starters. This isn't a "switch from
Windows to Ubuntu Linux" text written for the average home PC user.
It's, at least in theory, an "all-in-one" guide for everything you
ever wanted to know about Ubuntu (but were afraid to ask)."
