In turn I thank elvis and sairuk for there encouragement to move to Linux. :) I'm trying to find a hard copy of the Ubuntu Bible at a reasonable price. I can't read long books online and much rather a hard copy.

easy peasy... i have it as pdf format.there is a place here in townsville and im sure these is others rould like it, but the place here is called "copy works".i think they are just a local crowd.anyhoo if you take a pdf file to them they will print you a book and bind it for a reasonable cost.

Cool might investigate that myself. I'm concern with their concerns about copyright. Can only ask I guess.

Just rang a mob. cost $98 lol I can purchase it for around $50 from memory.

Yeah, ironically printing the PDF version is often more expensive than buying the paperback.

A lot of these Linux books are actually open-source books! I have "Samba 3 By Example" to help me set up Samba Domain Controllers for Windows networks. The book itself is open source, and you can read it direct off the net in HTML, download the PDF, or buy the book. Profits from the book go back to the Samba guys (and the FSF), so I bought the book. :)

I can't speak for the Ubuntu book above, but generally if there's a PDF version, it often freely distributable. Can you confirm/deny Dazrae?
