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.

Shouldn't that be "2-4", as at the moment the only options are between 1-2 hours, 3-4 hours, but where does the 2-3 come in?
I usually spend 2-3 hours a day, sometimes more, on LQ because I have an increasing urge to learn as much as I can about Linux in as little time as possible! When I spend this amount of time on LQ, I am able to take in quite a lot of information, while not bogging myself down at the same time. Good poll btw

Well there is 1-2 which includes 1h. and 2hs. and everything in between. Since 2hs. is used in the 1-2, the next one is 3-4.
Actually, I did not give it much thought and it is not really worth a debate.
Actually I would bet the mods spend less time than we think. They usually stick to the business of answering questions and responding to moderation actions. I have rarely seen moderators take part in the time-consuming discussions of General.
Anyway to answer the question, I used to spend a lot of time here but of late I have been busy so my time has been cut down and I just stick to business (non-General) and have not taken part in General discussions.
mostly between 1 - 2 but sometimes more, and usually without logging in.
Depends on what I'm after, for instance recently I installed a FX 5200 vid card and spent ages here and at other sites, lurking around to see how others fared and trying to pick up tips on getting it right ......
but mostly lurking in the Mandriva forums and here in General and occasionally in Networking or Security.
I find the Security forum interesting and have learnt a lot just reading the posts, some of it is scary stuff.
