    For those of a Linux disposition I spotted this book review on the BCS website :

    Ubuntu Linux Desktop
    Ric Sherves

    Publisher Wiley
    ISBN 978-0-470-34520-7
    RRP £19.99
    Reviewed by Elias Pimenidis, MBCS CITP
    Score 10 out of 10

    If anyone had any reservations or even fears as to how to step into the unknown world of Linux, reading this book will set them free and unleash them with confidence into this exciting adventure. The book uses the Ubuntu operating system, release 8.10 (also known as Intrepid Ibex) as a reference point, but the content could easily accommodate other versions as well.

    The author claims that the book is intended for the experienced computer user who wants to find out more about the Ubuntu Linux Desktop system, but the evidence suggests a much wider readership.

    Thanks for that mate. I'm dual booting with Ubuntu x64 but so far all I've used it for is my emergency OS should Windows crash on me like it did the other month :rolleyes:
