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.

The only game I play is same-gnome which is a strategy game. It was on my Ubuntu 10.04 but I had to dig around for a method to install it there. When I upgraded to 12.04 same-gnome was gone.

It requires running a virtual machine with Ubuntu 8.10 installed but I have...
