Debian 8 is the must-have handbook for learning Linux. Start on the beginners level and learn how to deploy the system with graphical interface and terminal. This book provides the basic knowledge to grow and become a 'junior' systems administrator. Start off with exploring the GNOME desktop interface and adjust it to your personal needs. Overcome your fear of using the Linux terminal and learn the most essential commands in administering Debian. Expand your knowledge of system services (systemd) and learn how to adapt them. Get more out of the software in Debian and outside of Debian. Manage your home-network with network-manager, etc. 10 percent of the profits on this book will be donated to the Debian Project.
