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 old gateway (a nasty little bugger when it was running windows) running ASP and 5 servers running red hat 8. I know of about 4 people using some form of redhat or suse. I've got about 40 public computers running windows XP with cygwin, but I'm the only one who uses it. I'm trying to convince everyone here at work that linux is the best way to go, but they are a bunch of old ladies who don't want to hear it. Meanwhile they have to listen to me rant about the horrors of microflop.
I use Mandrake 10, my friend uses Mandrake 9.whatever-it-is, (he insists that he has the better deal, and I'm starting to believe him. However he just sold his computer so.... ) My friend/teacher has fedora on his laptop. Plus two coyote router boxes I know of. My friend's dad works for SUN, but that doesn't really count. I am trying to convert my family, but they are paranoid about downtime so...
thats all for now

Convert from what? If they're running some kind of
BSE, errrh, BSD maybe ;) ...
True, it is an old thread, but the question is interesting. So far I saw only one teacher using FC on their laptop and openoffice to show presentation ... rare, and the teacher happen to be a $%#@%$, but that's another story. Technically at most schools they run servers and the servers run Linux usually. Other than that, nobody
