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.

This lightbulb business is hilarious! The joke was too good, and too true.
But hey even though the light from windows is free, you still have to put a firewall in front of it to protect it. So after drastically limiting the amount of light coming through, isnt it just better to get the Linux light_bulbs which are more dependable anyways since they're not affected by the weather outside?
You are mistaken. The light from Windows' lightBulbs (you must use the correct capitalisation) costs £30 an hour and, if a lightBulb fuses, it costs £769 to repair. FireWalls reduce the chance of it fusing by acting as a sort of surge protector, but they sometimes fail and the repair price costs the same.
It's much better to go with Linux's light_bulbs: as you said, they are more reliable and FAR cheaper to install in your house and maintain, repair etc. A switch to Linux light_bulbs is well worth it :P
Umm...its Window's windows not lightbulbs. Window's windows and Linux light_bulbs are similar only in that they provide a means of lighting. But you're right the price for repairing a window is as high as the sun which provides the light through the window. No, seriously, ever had to repair a broken window before?
Well, I'm running Edgy Furry Dangerous Dan LB V2.90 on a Windows OS in VMWare, no probs, only thing is you have put the external sound cable from my speakers between your teeth, cross your legs, and press your nose to the keyboard otherwise Windows freezes...btw thats the threaded version, as I couldn't get the little bayonette pointy thingies to screw in properly in the threads...not too impressed though, neither is my wife... I can barely understand her her with the jack in between her teeth and when she re-crosses her legs the lights flash off an on..
