Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference

The Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference is a excellent resource for Ubuntu users and is now available for download at www.ubuntupocketguide.com. The book focuses on teaching new users how to navigate Linux and the skills needed to become an expert Ubuntu user. Offering support for both Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10. I find the pocketbook to be accessible and easy to understand. I am currently making my way through the 150+ pages on solid Ubuntu knowledge.

Two Years & Four Releases Later

Ubuntu1501 has been running for over two years and has offered articles and howto's for the last four Ubuntu releases. I'm am very proud of the work I have done and the community the blog has built. I am surprised at the traffic the site generates even though I last updated when Intrepid was released. As you can see the numbers are amazing.


Unfortunately, I am moving on. I sold my Dell 1501 and replaced it with a Dell Mini 9 and a Dell Studio 15. I have been hard at work with www.ubuntumini.com.

I will continue to pay for the domain and publish comments as long as people log on and read.

Thank You,

Best Comment on Ubuntu1501

@Drew Martell
Please stop sharing your stupidity here! Running an anti-virus in Win is the only way to go and even that is not guaranteed protection. It's not about knowing what you are doing (and you've already proved you don't) it's just you have been lucky all this time. If you just plug your pen drive on an infected system with Windows it'll pass the virus to your pen drive. And YES, your Win WILL autorun the virus when you plug your pen drive in it, doesn't matter what options you have selected on it. Fact, Windows is full of holes for viruses.
As for running as root to use VirtualBox. no comments there, this blog itself explains how to use VB as normal user.
Stop posting man, you're just too f** stupid.
