Ubuntu Unleashed 2021 Edition is filled with unique information for everyone who wants to make the most of the Ubuntu Linux operating system, including the latest in Ubuntu mobile development. This new edition has been thoroughly updated by a long-time Ubuntu community leader to reflect the new Ubuntu 20.04 and the forthcoming Ubuntu 20.10 and 21.04 releases.
Former Ubuntu Forum administrator Matthew Helmke covers all you need to know about Ubuntu 20.04 installation, configuration, productivity, multimedia, development, system administration, server operations, networking, virtualization, security, DevOps, and more – including intermediate-to-advanced techniques you won’t find in any other book.
