When I started with Linux, the official boxes you ordered directly from
Germany used to come with 10 CD's and two or three manuals, each a few
hundred pages worth of reading. That was with SuSE Linux Professional,
and that's how I learnt how Linux works, and how to administer my box
(quite a computer-culture shock after Windows 98.)

Does Ubuntu publish any official, printed material? 

There seems to be
but I haven't read it. 

The most useful aspect of those old SuSE manuals was that they taught
how to use the console. I suggest you learn it at some point. It is the
most productive tool you have access to.
