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.

I've started development on my own operating system. I've achieved "hello world OS" status so far (boots up and prints a message to the console), and I've started working on core functions within the kernel to make actual kernel development easier.
So I'm going to use this space as something of a progress update as I go. Who knows, perhaps one day some of the crazy ideas I have on OS design will come to light.
Linux is an interesting beast. By design it is modular, and so as a direct consequence it is very flexible. Its flexibility both on a large scale ( for example scaling for hardware ) and on a small scale ( what it can do ).
Operating systems such as Microsoft Windows however has been designed with a very narrow mindset. This 'target implementation' is a rough fathom of the average user's presumed work: documents, games, file management, etc. Although it would seem to cover most...
