Concept and Approach

This book is intended as both a handy reference and a dynamic learning experience: You'll get some hands-on experience as you work through it. The text is organized by increasing skills, so that as much as possible you won't be asked to do something that you haven't already learned. In addition, you can put the various morsels of knowledge you acquire into practice through several exercises, or projects.

The projects in this book serve a secondary purpose as well: By working through them, you will learn to configure and customize your Ubuntu system. By the time you finish this book, you should have pretty good mastery over Ubuntu.
