    How do you convert the *chm (Windows Help File) format to any Linux readable format? or a pdf?

    Not stupidity at all, that's a perfectly valid question. Ubuntu doesn't have a chm viewer installed by default. Refer to this thread for the answer.

    Re: The Official Ubuntu Book

    Why on earth will somebody write a book on Linux (and its pretty good one) in a restricted windows file format?

    I think you need to install Gnome chm reader (or what ever it is called) to view it in Linux. If you have access to windows then just click on it and enjoy!

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnochm

    Re: The Official Ubuntu Book

    I didn't realize which book this was until I opened it up. Are you sure this is an official release and it's legal to download it for free? The book retails for $34.99, why would they release it for free?
