I wanted to let you know that there is another Ubuntu book in the
works, this one specifically focused on Ubuntu for desktop users. I'm
tentatively titling this "Desktop Linux with Ubuntu", and it will be
published by Manning Press ( later this year
(hopefully post-Dapper but pre-Eft).

I have a Wiki up with the working table of contents at I do some occaisional
blogging on Ubuntu, Linux, and open source at

It would be great to have some thoughtful feedback on this,
particularly in several areas:
- common installation or upgrade problems people have experienced;
- common issues with device/peripherals support people have experienced;
- general thoughts on who the real target audience is for desktop
Linux in general, and Ubuntu as a desktop solution in particular.

Manning will be looking for technical reviewers for the manuscript at
some point. I'd be happy to pass on names of those qualified and
interested to my editor when the time comes.
