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.

As symbolic as this is, it probably doesn't actually change much. The data and the "requests" for it are still there.
Yup, unfortunately, the protection racket known as the "U.S. government" has lots of guns and the willingness to use them, so they will get what they want. I would just destroy all the data and tell them to pound sand, but then I'm a little extreme that way, hahaha.
Talk about timing. I had recently signed up with them (paid 5 years upfront, too) seeing as how I'd be
losing my ISP soon. Set up my Linux boxes to use the service and then went to all the vendors/companies
where my ISP addy was used and made changes. Now I gotta do it all over again.
But in this case I'm not angry at all. That was a bold move on lavabit's part. Now the guy's gonna fight
for his fourth amendment rights. Hope he gets the financial support he needs to battle Big Brother.
I think he did the right thing. I think if more companies did the same, maybe things would change for the better. It will never happen tho, as the giant monopolies don't give a **** about their customers. That's why you should avoid them.
