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.

Several people I know use MSN for their news/home page and the messenger etc., How about a site called Linux Network with all the General Newscoverage etc., etc., on similar lines ? This will also promote Linux.
Originally posted by trickykid Why? There's already too many of those anyways in my opinion at least. It'd just be another MSNBC or CNN site to me with total crap coverage of total crap news.. well, that's my opinion at least.
People who go to such sites also use the search function. This brings in revenue that can be used for OS. Also, this gets more people thinking about Linux.
Originally posted by trickykid I would think any revenue by ads and such would help fund the site itself, not the OS that isn't owned by any sole company.
I mean, look how big LQ is here and the ads at times don't cover the cost of all the bills. When the bills can't be paid, it comes out of Jeremy's own pocket.
Some say that there is more money in the search feature. Google is very successful due to this today. Individual ads are a different issue. Revenue generated from such a site can be donated to the major OS Distro Projects. Anyways, this is just a thought.

Well, what are you waiting for then, start up a site and get to work..

great idea actually , having a "MSN" for linux will helps in attracting more users of free softwares , it also helps in introducing users of free softwares to better and progressive coverages of information and general knowledge instead of others which are nothing but opinions of themselves ...
