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.

It's time to say you about my modestly slackware mirror located on Bulgaria, Gabrovo. I know that the most people uses slackbuilds, but there are people that don't know how to use it. From the other side I upload packages that I need and if I make clean installation I can just download all with wget and install them easy and faster. Some of the packages are builded from SlackBuilds. It's not complete, because this is work of the time and I often upload packages. I try to focus on system packages...
