Mastering GNOME Book Excerpt:

Mastering GNOME helps the reader master the GNOME desktop environment for a faster and more robust computing experience. The best thing about Linux is the plethora of choices that users tend to get. Whether it pertains to the kernel modules, or to the desktop environments, there is no shortage of options. Speaking of desktop environments, GNOME stands tall as one of the leading options. GNOME is an open source, free to use, simple, and attractive workspace interface supporting almost all the major Linux operating systems. GNOME includes a beautiful collection of programs, libraries, plugins, and probably millions of themes (some of which you may need to install manually). In fact, one of the most exemplary aspects of GNOME is GNOME Boxes, which allows you to construct virtual networks of multiple Linux operating systems without having to visit the website or download an iOS file, and it runs perfectly well via virtualization on KVM, which is the icing on the cake. But that is not all – GNOME is, arguably, the single most stable and dependable Linux desktop environment available today! GNOME has become one of the most effective, secure, and trustworthy desktops offered for the Linux platform, and that is the primary reason why it is the desktop environment of choice for Ubuntu, the world’s most popular Linux distro. Regardless of skillset, users can quickly get up to speed with GNOME for everyday usage. This is where Mastering GNOME comes in. With Mastering GNOME, using GNOME for day-to-day computing becomes quite straightforward, which will help readers undoubtedly boost their productivity. The Mastering Computer Science series is edited by Sufyan bin Uzayr, a writer and educator with over a decade of experience in the computing field.
