This new edition has been thoroughly updated by a long-time Ubuntu community leader to reflect the exciting new Ubuntu 16.10 and the forthcoming Ubuntu 17.04 and 17.08.

Former Ubuntu Forum administrator Matthew Helmke covers all you need to know about Ubuntu 16.10 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.
