Hello. I have a question regarding Linux/Debian/Ubuntu.

Are there any very good online references/resources from a written historical perspective for Linux including visuals from the dawn or inception of the operating system to the latest developments of Linux, Debian, and most specifically Ubuntu?

It may be a hard copy reference manual you can suggest or recommend as well – free or paid that is comprehensive and detailed. A PDF file would be great! Please provide the URL to that website as well. I would like the information and data depicted not only for a novice, but also an expert could utilize the more complete information too. I am willing to pay, if necessary, a reasonable and prudent cost as long as it is reasonable, prudent, and fair; however free is always recommended of course.  

Please reply.

Thank you!

Well its not a really a in-depth book explaining everything. It is a book for beginners on Ubuntu and explain a little history, then goes into the basics of linux, what it offers, and how to use it.

The Official Ubuntu book - Benjamin Mako Hill, Matthew Helmke, & Corey Burger.

@ Russell_Venable:

Hello. Nice to meet you!

Thank you for your comment.

I see that your reference is a good source from the little information provided by websites and sellers online.

Since no one else has responded, which I find rather surprising to a question of this kind and type by now, it makes it very easy to close this question/thread at this time.

Again, thank you!

Yes, I am kind of suprised as well. The majority of experience here lies on windows I think. That is why linux information isn't so ubundent or simply no one else knew of a good reference. I actually own that book, btw. Pretty good book.
