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.

After a disconcertingly bad and completely unexpected (ok, ok, call me naive, but for a long while my Mac Book did just work) Lion OS experience, and not really wishing to pursue future costly Windows upgrades, I have decided to refocus on Linux.
I think I will try Fedora again. I am wondering what it is like running the freeware security product Prey. I must have a dabble during our forthcoming Southern summer. Still, Fedora is a bit bleeding edge for those inexperienced with Linux.....
I'm getting more frustrated as more applications forget that lovely middle button `swipe to copy and click to paste` tool. Is ti due to `windows` converts, now Linux developers, not having experienced the early days of terminal applications?
I've been using Linux on and off for the past ten years or so and at first, even I was very intimidated by the OS. It took a lot of researching and also a lot of trial and error before I settled in on my current distribution, Slackware. I've had the opportunity and unfortunate privilege of trying out other distributions that were more or less a migraine. Red Hat, Mandrake, SuSE, Ubuntu, and a few others I've forgotten over the years.
As a user of Linux I've been ridiculed in college...
Saturday and Sunday night, me and the wife went to the St. Louis 'Big Muddy Blues Festival' downtown on the Mississippi Riverfront...I had a wonderful time and the one band was super good, they ended the night with a Howlin' Wolf's song, Shake it for Me.
This is held every September but the first time I've attended it. I'll keep an eye out for it next year. I guess its the last outdoor concert to end summer.
