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: Configuration Management Tool of the Year
SaltStack rocks if for me and has really come on strong in 2013.
Note: Okay, I get that some live and breath vim, but a text editor is NOT a configuration management tool unless you're talking about a very small number of boxes. Try managing a few hundred, much less thousands of systems with vim or pico and this becomes readily apparent.
I'm more surprised that Chef only got 12 votes, but the participation in this category is among the lowest for all the polls.
I suspect that is reflective of the target audience, w/exception of Slackers and a few old dogs, a substantial percentage of LQ's target audience are fairly new to maybe intermediate users. Configuration management tools target more enterpirse type users, who 1) tend to be intermediate to advanced, and 2) too busy working for the man to hang out here :-P
