Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

View Poll Results: Open Source Hardware Product of the Year
All the nominees are great. But Raspberry Pi was everywhere this year.
Agreed. Hopefully it'll get into schools in the UK. Am fed up with ICT classes being synonymous with MS Office. I bought one for my father as well. It looks like he got interested in Linux thanks to that. Until now he'd say that he's too old to start learning Linux (he's been using Windows since its first release) but he also likes circuit boards so he can see the potential.
i sooooo want to vote for open pandora... but raspberry pi... it's size, price, and the way it's versatility/utility has captured the imagination of many, not just those wanting to use it, but also those inspired by it to make more similar boards. much respect to the likes of the beagleboards and arduinos, but it's raspberry pi that's set the world on fire. (in a good way).
still, my respects and honourable mention to openpandora.
also, an honourable mention to the GVCS. maybe that should be an option to vote on too? or does that count as many projects in one?
I wish I could vote for 2 of them! The Pandora looks great but I have yet to recieve mine after almost 3 years. I do have an RPi which is awsome but you'll most likely have to purchase other accessories depending on the type of setup you want. I still want to buy a good 7-10" HD monitor for mine. Decisions, decisions.....!
RPi plugs in to any TV at any party + any ARM like: ftp://ftp.armedslack.org/slackwarear...ASPBERRYPI.TXT and on. Maybe I should change the $100 to $37 using Ethernet an old TV, keyboard and mouse... OpenPandora looks sweet but at the cost to hardware I’d rather try Linux on a psp or 3ds?
