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.

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.
