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.

firstly this is my fault for not being a guru and programmer but... I've been doing my taxes and healthcare junk and guess what, the USA government (+++) does not support Linux\freedom. Long story short I had to install chrome and adobe acrobat reader in Linux, for most of it (quickly uninstalled) plus inevitably wound up in a $ʞɔnsoɹɔıɯ VM!
I think too much of our government here is just puppeteering and\or actors. [Slight movie spoiler] after just seeing American Hustle I love how the mayor so blindly thinks he's helping the people and even his friend$ (the microwave was a nice touch.)

All of us billions of human beings might ... as it may turn out ... absolutely suck at forming "nations" or "governments" or seeking (in our own curious ways ...) to preserve "freedoms" and "dignity" ...
... but, by gawd, somewhere and everywhere on this-here great-big orbitingrock(!) that we all somehow find ourselves stuck-on (at about 10,000 miles per hour) ... (for give-or-take seventy-odd solar orbits, give-or-take a bread-truck ...) ...
... we are all still trying!
Maybe, just maybe, in spite of it all, freedom really does exist. Everywhere(!).
