      Many people had US accounts before the Aus version was created. The US store also had things the Aust version didn't. Similar to the way people wanted US Netflix.

        This is true. I already had a gajillion free US amazon ebooks before amazon australia opened.

        I really couldnt be bothered creating a split of books across two accounts so I appreciate the US based ones as it is the only one I remain using.

        Well the solution is to just a provide an alternative US link. It really should stop at some point…

          @BongoOB … It won't stop until book publishing rights are sold into a one solo global market. Currently, Books, including eBooks and AudioBooks are sold sold via the paradigm of traditional 'paper' books.

          These separate markets for English language titles used to be for:

          1.British (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Channle Isles, British overseas protectorates and territories such as Gibralta, Falkland Isles. etc.
          2 British & Commonwealth Countries (including Australia, New Zealand. India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa etc. (everchanging due to independencies or exclusions from the Commonwealth etc)
          3.Individiual countries. i.e. Australia
          4.North America, either USA & Canada or individual countries.

          Among other reasons this traditional publishing rights model has been maintained due to variances in spelling, grammar between British and North American English. Economies of scale does not warrant publishing globally only one type of English into a global market.. world war 3 would commence over which type of English to use. As English is a dynamic language, as well a a lingua franca global language, it may eventually move to become one single spelling, style grammer etc… just not in my lifetime :)

          International rights, along with Interlectual Property Rights (i.e. copyright) is complex issue, but underscores how publishing rights are determined globally. Hence the reason for Amazon having differing distributions between the USA and Australian online stores.

    Many moons ago I bought a Linux for Beginners book, and it was pretty average to say the least. Not much more help than simply getting inbuilt documentation for each command. I suppose if you're unable to access a computer at all, it may help you, but nothing beats being hands on.

    I still use windows but I needed to do a lot of messing around on servers, basic stuff mainly, and the book I had was worse than a Google search. I'm not saying this book is that bad, but just because it's free it might not really suit your needs. Or maybe it'll be perfect.

    I just wanted to add my few cents, inflated since the QE.
