The Complete Linux Manual – VOL 30 2019

Everything you need to start learning Linux Ever since its introduction to the world in 1991 , as a then project by Finnish student Linus Torvalds, Linux has become one of the most important operating systems in use today.
While you may not realise it, Linux is working behind the scenes in many of your everyday devices. Versions of Linux can be found in smart TVs, Android phones and tablets, in-car entertainment systems and GPSs, as well as being the operating system of choice for web servers and the world’s most powerful supercomputers.

However, it also works for you too. Linux is such a versatile and malleable operating system that with a simple twist it can be transformed into a completely different type of system. You can use it as a standard desktop computer, media centre or programming and coding platform, and even a gaming machine. It’s this many faceted and personal approach that makes Linux such a unique and thoroughly enjoyable system to learn to use.
Armed with The Complete Linux Manual we guide you through installing Linux, using it and even creating your own customised distribution based on Arch Linux. Everything you need is within these pages.
