I just wanted to briefly mention the incredible work the guys at UBUNTU-MANUAL.ORG have done to put together this fabulous manual and publish it right when the official release should take place (today!).
The Ubuntu Manual portal
I have not read the manual in full, but have glanced over several sections and I believe this is a very good step forward to providing improved and thorough documentation to new comers. I specially liked the clarity and honesty in some sections, specifically when setting the right expectations around what Ubuntu does best.
Let's now spread the word and make sure people get a chance to read this so that their Ubuntu experience is the best possible!
