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 think I like my Unity desktop environment the best, of what I have tried so far.
I have various version of the GNOME desktop and like them.

NEWS 151010:Build 150916 has been replaced by Build 151010, which is totally error-free and has some extra features.
COMPARISON with my previous Build from 150916 News in Build 151010: Most important is that Build 151010 can run and be installed in VirtualBox and VMware. Also that OpenGL ES hardware acceleration for Intel/AMD (radeon) and Nvidia (nouveau) chipsets is enabled. Ive also added the Twitter and Viber apps. Very useful apps (I think).
I just want to share that I have “discovered” that Skype and Viber can be installed and used without problems in “my” Android x86 system KitKat Build 7 from 150721. These are pretty awesome apps, wouldn’t you agree?
