This seems like a reasonable introduction to Ubuntu. If someone was really trying to get started from scratch with Ubuntu, it might be too much in some ways and too little in others. In the section on security, for instance, it suggests installing ClamAV, but it doesn't give the user enough information to understand in general how to avoid getting viruses; automated scanning for viruses wouldn't even be in my own top 10 list of things to tell a newbie about as a way of keeping a Linux box secure.

Information wants to be free, so make some free information.
