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.

The decline and fall of the Linux forum - Episode IV : Sadly Linux got popular...
(...and what you can't do about it)
This may be the final installment. I wasn't going to write this one at all. In fact after the last one, I left LQ for quite a while and perhaps during that time, things cooled off, or perhaps I did not feel the urge to publish my thoughts on this.

And here we go again with another opinion piece and long awaited 3rd installment in this acclaimed series...

As this is a blog, you may find some comments offensive. If this is indeed the case, then I would strongly advise against reading blogs - or grow a thicker skin. The comments or examples in this article are not directed at anyone or any particular forum.

I've seen people struggling with this on the web and decided to write a short 'blog' on the subject - hopefully some will find this useful.
