Preface/Excerpt:

Ubuntu Hacks

Ubuntu Linux--the most popular Linux distribution on the planet--preserves the spirit embodied in the ancient African word "ubuntu," which means both "humanity to others" and "I am what I am because of who we all are." Ubuntu won the "Linux Journal" Reader's Choice Award for best Linux distribution and is consistently the top-ranked Linux variant on DistroWatch.com. The reason this distribution is so widely popular is that Ubuntu is designed to be useful, usable, customizable, and always available for free worldwide.
