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.

And frankly, if I'm going into combat and my life may rely on my teammates, I'd sooner they be guys and gals that volunteered to be there and take the same risks, as opposed to someone who doesn't want to be there and who is only there because their other option was going to prison.

I wonder if this means the US government is prepairing to get involved in even more wars around the globe? Hope it's not, since the world is sufficiently screwed nowadays as to add more belic conflicts to the mix.
