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 can't believe that people fall for this. Why would Microsoft call someone to tell them they have a virus? Although, the script they use is somewhat humorous.

I use Slackware Linux at home, where I play systems administrator for my wife and me -- and eventually our child(ren, after the next one is born in December). I'm going to quote an interview with Alien Bob to explain why I use Slackware:
To me, Slackware’s philosophy has a different angle that sets it apart from all the others. To this day, Slackware has an extremely lean design, intended to make you experience Linux the way the software authors intended. This is accomplished
"Clarity, Brevity, Generality"
Paterned after the "Liberté, égalité, fraternité" of the French Revolution, these are the watch words with which I introduced a presentation on programming I gave to HLUG (H=Houston) about 4 years ago. I quote them here, 1st because they are appropriate, & 2nd because I want my copyright & other intellectual property claim on the public record.
I have strong opinions on programming, especially scripting...
I'm one of those Linux users who would like Linux to operate more like, at least in appearance and functionality, Windoze. I've been having a great time with Ubuntu, using it regularly since 8.04 Hardy Heron. I still don't know many of the ins and outs of Linux or even Ubuntu, as I'm more of a user than a programmer or administrator. If someone tells me to go into Terminal and enter ____, I can copy and paste, run it, and report the results, but that's about as deep as I get.
