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.

Learn to type, using more than two fingers of one hand.
Learn how to use vim and emacs.
Learn how to program: bash scripting, C, Python or Perl, assembly.
Learn more in general about using GNU/Linux. But, acknowledging the fact that I'm incurably lazy, I shall be making the same todo list this time next year.
