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'm making a movie about why I hate Microsoft, and there are many reasons people hate Microsoft that I don't know about, so I NEED YOUR HELP! Just post why you hate Microsoft or any ideas about the movie. Contributors will be able to see the movie before it is released to the general public (or Microsoft).
Why do I know that?
I don't really know. But don't think that just 'cause you know what a gaffer is that you're getting my job. Get your own. In fact I've unionized already. Yeah, if you want to be a gaffer you have to apply to the 384th Linuxquestions light holders and mounters union.
Hate is such a strong word, how about dislike? I dislike MS because of the obvious, windows is buggy and insecure. You can also add monopolistic (is that a word?, lol) to the list but all that aside MS does give many milllions in aid to charities so its not all bad. Of course you will have a small part of the movie that deals with Linux being a better OS than Windows right?
I don't really hate Microsoft nor do I hate their software. What I don't like is their general business practices though. I don't use Microsoft cause I have so many other choices that work for me in a more stable, secure environment.
But what I do believe is that no one should use other software alternatives because you hate Microsoft, that's not a good enough reason to me and shouldn't be a reason at all. Don't hate, just disagree and dislike. Hate is not a good word to use in any case, unless your talking about biting insects, now I hate them... all of them.
OK, so that could be the movie: You have the 'I hate ms' puppet and then another, wiser, puppet says 'Do not hate, hate leads to the dark side' and then the other one says 'I hate star wars, too' and blows everything up. Meanwhile, the casting couch guy builds a pvr from scraps around the studio and installs LFS on it.
