In this chapter we looked at a variety of different advanced subjects related to running and managing your Ubuntu system. Installation, removal, and upgrade of software using the Add/Remove Applications dialog and using Synaptic were discussed. We also discussed the installation and use of several different types of hardware devices, including an in-depth look at printing. We perused some of the methods of accessing remote files and offered a crash course in the powerful Ubuntu terminal. Finally, we looked at a possibility of running certain programs written for Microsoft Windows under Ubuntu.
