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.

Being an often vocal advocate of Linux has its ups and downs. Sometimes It would just be easier to have a box with windows in my house. However that would be letting "The Man" get you down, which is unacceptable in my book ! One of the most common occurrences I have seen in people trying to migrate over is to get a distro installed and stare at it blankly saying what now ? So what Im trying to do here is hopefully answer some of these questions and inform you of the programs and applications...
So the good news is I had the last week off work. The bad news , as you can guess by the title, is that I spent it lugging god awful heavy books and furniture to the new crib. Archaic manuals and cables that I cant bring myself to throw away seemed to be a living entity, and I spent my week feeling like the Atlas man !
