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 have an iPhone 4 8GB. Recently upgraded to iOS7. Yes I know was a big mistake. I can't even reject the incoming call!!!!
I cant select multiple contacts from the list and send message to all at one go.
The phone has slowed down to frustrating levels.
Swiping the contact from missed call list to make a call takes about a minute to connect.
I am not sure if Android will solve my issues. iOS 6 is a pretty good platform. Performs well on the older phones and I was a happy man using it. Some of my colleagues and friends are happy with the way their iPhone is performing on iOS7. May be my phone has issues. Not sure.
It certainly sounds like it might be something phone-specific and/or hardware-related ... when any computer takes "minutes" or even "seconds" to do "anything," and millions of other people aren't complaining, yeah, "it's probably you(r machine)." Can you get the thing serviced anymore?
Offhand, it sounds to me like there may well be a hardware problem with this unit. Tell them what the symptoms are, and ask them to diagnose it. (If they try to sell you a new-latest phone, say "no, thanks.")
I frankly doubt that "reinstalling the OS" will do anything useful. Either the OS is installed correctly or it isn't. And, if it isn't, it will know.
