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.

Non Uniform Memory Architecture is kind of a dry subject for most. Where a bit of code or data sits in processor cache is of little importance to the average user, unless you become interested in things like virtualization (which seeks to maximize the utilization of that cache and slams face first into the issue ) or you're interested in performance testing, in which case squeezing every extra productive cycle out of the hardware becomes a pressing concern. I happen to be interested in both, so...

I was looking for a manager to handle a particular issue earlier, and I reached out to him on internal chat to get assistance. He wasn't available. In frustration, I mumbled "That manager is our only hope."
Across from my cubicle I heard someone pipe back in a distinctly Yoda-like voice "No. There is another..." and continued with instructions on locating the hunt group for that team, all while maintaining the Yoda voice.

First, you aren't **EVER** supposed to skip versions when you upgrade OpenBSD. If you have an OpenBSD 5.5 machine and you want to upgrade to OpenBSD-5.7, you need to upgrade to 5.6 first, then upgrade again to 5.7 (or backup everything, perform...
Last week I installed the Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution for the first time and unlike Fedora it felt smoother than a breeze.
The installation GUI is polished as an Enterprise grade toolkit. The general installation procedures were trivial but when a step regarding the Red Hat Subscription Management this needed to be skipped.
There was a problem in the partition table of the windows laptop and the vmware provided had a missing lua script, so virtualbox was chosen...
