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.

Well I am just analyzing the way stuff is said, and what I am saying is that the "fluff" sounds ironic, like almost mocking MS, Create and manipulate charts more than ever before? doesn't that sound so stupid, like cliche. Its just a MS product on the Mac Site, I just think the slogans are too cheesy and stuff... dont you?
I have worked with computers for 35 years. In that time, I have learned patience.
Over the last 15 years or so, Microsoft Word is the ONLY software product which goaded me to the point where I did something bad. I twisted a keyboard into two pieces (well, two big ones and a bunch of little ones as it shattered) without even realizing I was doing it as Word97 absolutely INSISTED on doing it its way, rather than paying attention to how I wanted to do it. I have had no use for Word since that time, though sometimes necessity dictates and I use it. In fact, on Windows, I still prefer to use Wordperfect 8, which was the last good WP release.
However, I must say that Excel is the best spreadsheet on the market, hands down.
But wait... Don't answer yet! We also include this fabulous set of super sharp knives which which you can burn, twist and smash, and they'll keep on cutting just like new! See how they cut cleanly through even the toughest keyborads with ease?
Truly anti-climatic, I'd say. Except I don't see the connection with weather...
