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.

Here in our organization and certain offices around, tea is preferred than coffee. Though coffee is also available through the vending machines. But that does not give the real taste of a fresh brewed coffee.
Well my profession involves nothing to do with computer, so i probably don't count, but i do go on my laptop almost every smokeo and lunch and i spend my share on the computer, just ask my ex girlfriend. Anyways, i don't drink a lot of coffee, i just go for the good ol water, or if i'm home, a nice bourbon or absinthe.
I dont drink coffee or any other caffeine drink at work. Like all simulants, getting on it means you have to stay on until you've finished the task, or else you crash. I'll bet that someone here is thinking 'you're making coffee sound like a drug'. Yes I am, and yes it is. Try not drinking coffee for a few months then having a short black or 3, you'll be as high as a kite.
