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 was just looking for some info on running sysprep on some xp-pro images I was given the task to do at work and saw this written on the help page, I don't remember seing this in any linux config files.
"WARNING : Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk. "
I Don't know why Microsoft can't go to using config files instead of the very archaic registry that noone knows how to fix if its broken.
I believe the only solution for MS at this point is acuire linux kernel bundled with KDE, include luna theme from http://www.kde-look.org/content/prev...file=155-1.jpg , alter it a little bit so it will look like exactly like XP, end sell it as a new product, butt sh-hhh - nobody has to know it is an open sourse OS and it shouldn't be free.
