previously learned concepts. Ubuntu for Non-Geeks covers topics likely to be
of interest to the average desktop user, such as installing new software via
Synaptic; Internet connectivity; working with removable storage devices,
printers, and scanners; burning DVDs, playing audio files, and even working
with iPods.
