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.

I use Android but i don't particularly like it, and i don't like its close integration with Google and i don't like Gmail which i have to have now.
I have high hopes for Ubuntu Touch and FirefoxOS. But as with FirefoxOS phones are available and Ubuntu not (AFAIK), my vote goes to them.
I was an early adopter of Android (1.x something) and way ahead of the curve when everyone else was still yoddling about iPhones and Blackberry's. Had high hopes for Android but then the Goog lost it's way and became evil. So I never upgraded. I doubt I'll ever get another "smart" phone, because with the Snowden disclosures, you'd have to be pretty dumb to use one.
I do think FirefoxOS shows much promise, however, and hence gets my vote as a true FOSS alternative to Android.
HP quite way too soon. Th OS has great potential and has contributed features to some of the most advanced phones. Hopefully someone will revive this OS and compete with Android.
+1 on WebOS being prematurely killed before it's time. Palm developed a great OS and then blew it by coupling it with a lame device. HP doesn't know it's head from it's *** these days, has been struggling with extremely piss poor "leadership" & financial woes, so it's no wonder WebOS been lost in the shuffle.
