13. Pre-Switching Information > 13.4. Getting More Information

Getting More Information

Learning about Linux is an ongoing process, and the more resources you have available the better. Linux users are a technically savvy group, so they make use of a variety of information channels.

Books

For initial forays into Linux, it’s best to have a comprehensive guide. Hopefully, this book has provided you with the information you need to move beyond introductory Linux books, but obviously it can’t be all things to all people. If you want another take on the subject, check out Linux for Non-Geeks (No Starch Press). This book focuses on the GNOME desktop environment, which makes it a nice complement to this book and a good introduction to the Fedora distribution.

If you’re ready to tackle more than the pretty desktop environment in Linux, try Running Linux (O’Reilly). This is the best-selling Linux book of all time, and it provides everything you need to know to become a power Linux user. This includes not just understanding how to use a desktop environment, but how to administer a Linux machine and set up network services like web, file sharing, and email servers.
