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: Virtualization Product of the Year
Distribution: Debian Sid AMD64, Raspbian Wheezy, various VMs
I've come to dislike VirtualBox for what I see as a poor decision made by the development team.
In order to back up VB machines one must export them or else face the situation where they will not boot as they are on a different disk drive to the one they were created upon.
This, to my mind, is unacceptable and pathetic. I hadn't realised people that brain-dead were allowed to develop software.
VMware and family pretty much take the cake in this department. Although for my own purposes I I am liking SmartOS for leveraging all that Solaris goodness like ZFS, zones/container, DTrace, Crossbow, etc. in a true FOSS offering that's not beholden to Oracle.
