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.

This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 16.0 series.
4MLinux 16.0 Core BETA released.
This is a core system (only a few MB in size) for the 4MLinux 16.0 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 4.1.13, GNU C Library 2.22, and BusyBox 1.24.1. The 4MLinux 16.0 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 5.3.0 to compile programs designed for the i686 architecture.
4MLinux 16.0 is ready for testing. Create your documents with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 and share them using DropBox 3.12.6, surf the Internet with Firefox 43.0.4 and Chrome 47.0.2526.106, stay in touch with your friends via Skype 22.214.171.124 and Thunderbird 38.5.1, enjoy your music collection with Audacious 3.7 and aTunes 3.1.2, watch your favorite videos with MPlayer SVN-r37557 and VLC 2.2.1, play games with Xorg 1.18.0/Mesa 11.1.0 support enabled. You can also setup the 4MLinux LAMP Server (Linux 4.1.13, Apache 2.4.18, MariaDB 10.1.9, and PHP 5.6.16). Perl 5.22.0 and Python 2.7.11 are also available.
Antivirus Live CD 16.0-0.99 available for download.
Antivirus Live CD is an official 4MLinux fork including the ClamAV scanner. It's designed for users who need a lightweight live CD, which will help them to protect their computers against viruses. The latest version 16.0-0.99 is based on 4MLinux 16.0 and ClamAV 0.99.
4MRecover is a small live CD designed for data recovery. It's a part of 4MRescueKit, which in turn is one of the three main 4MLinux releases available for download. This version includes TestDisk 7.0 and it uses 4MLinux 16.0 as the base system.
BakAndImgCD is an official 4MLinux fork, which has been designed to perform the following two tasks: data backup (the supported filesystems are: btrfs, ext2, ext3, ext4, f2fs, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, nilfs2, ntfs, reiser4, reiserfs, and xfs) and disk imaging (using Partimage, Partclone, and GNU ddrescue). This release is based on the 4MLinux Backup Scripts 16.0.
4MParted is a very small live CD designed for disk partitioning. It's a part of 4MRescueKit, which in turn is one of the three main 4MLinux releases available for download. This version includes GParted 0.25.0 and it uses 4MLinux 16.0 as the base system.
4MRescueKit provides its users with software for antivirus protection, data backup, disk partitioning, and data recovery. It is distributed in the form of a multiboot CD, which includes four (extremely small) operating systems. This release has Antivirus Live CD 16.0-0.99, BakAndImgCD 16.0, 4MParted 16.0, and 4MRecover 16.0.
TheSSS (The Smallest Server Suite) is a lightweight server suite distributed as a live CD. This release is based on the 4MLinux Server 16.0, meaning that the components of the LAMP server are now: Linux 4.1.13, Apache 2.4.18, MariaDB 10.1.11, and PHP 5.6.18.
Major change in the core of the system, which now uses GNU Compiler Collection 5.3.0 to compile programs designed for the i686 architecture. Users can enjoy newly added network applications: uGet (download manager, a front-end to cURL), rTorrent (powerful CLI BitTorrent client), Grsync (backup utility, a front-end to rsync), and gFTP (old but still quite usable FTP client). Additionally, Chrome web browser (which was one of so called downloadable extensions in 4MLinux) has been replaced with Chromium (in March 2016 Google will drop its support for the 32-bit version of Chrome). And finally, the way in which 4MLinux handles compressed archives has been greatly improved.
