Greetings Ubuntu Server users and Local Team leaders.

Prentice Hall has just released the 3rd Ed. of "The Official Ubuntu
Server Book" authored by Kyle Rankin and Benjamin Mako Hill. As
background, the 2nd Ed. published in 2010 and the book has since been
updated to remain as the definitive, authoritative guide to getting up
and running quickly with the newest, most powerful versions of Ubuntu
Server. You can skim the complete Table of Contents and read a free
sample chapter, #3, "Package Management", here on the publisher site:
