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 am wondering if anyone here has tried
installing VirtualBox on Ubuntu 1404; then installing the 'open source' ISO
of Windows7 [XP,8,or any other Distro] on VirtualBox; then installing

Exton|OS build 150719 is based on Ubuntu 15.04 64 bit (released April 23, 2015) and Debian Jessie (Debian 8). Exton|OSís ISO file is a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run Exton|OS from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! Iíve found two scripts which make the installation to USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious. My tests show that they work flawlessly...
It's unbearable outside with temps in the 90s' and the humidity being real high, 80% plus. No relief in sight. So my work is being done inside. Nothing new for Illinois in July. Some corn is growing while some fields are rotting from all the rain.
Most of our local recreations are being hit hard. Golf is limited to walkers because of the wet conditions, old men like me who have health issue cannot walk the courses without potential problems. I walked once a few weeks...
