Line 15: Line 15:
IMPORTANT: the relationship envisaged with the Desktop Starter Guide is one of NO OVERLAP! This means that users will be able to easily see which guide to use for a particular task. In this context it is important to remember that '''Server Guide does not mean Admin Guide'''. Both guides will have reference to administrative tools, but the Desktop guide will tell the user how to setup a desktop, whereas the Server guide will tell the user how to set up servers like apache and ssh on his computer.

= Ideas for the upcoming Ubuntu version (Edgy Eft) =
