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.

the main issue Microsoft is facing right now is security. How secure will this new OS be? Even if they do put more emphasis on security there will be people who will stop at nothing to exploit any holes in the OS and MS knows that and as a result I think it will be even more of a handcuffed system than ever before. This might be a good thing for average PC users but not for powerusers. I could be wrong though.
Seems like they are borrowing ideas from Apple again. As you move over Longhorns icons they appear bigger (hmmm wonder where that came from). I do like the 3D graphics layer (Avalon) but it will require alot of muscle from your PC. They will offer a classic version for those with not enough min requirements to run the full blown version. Hmmmm people are waiting 2 more years for Windows OSX....hehehehe
It looks...okay. I still feel that my dropline GNOME desktop is better. I am sure that there will be about 1000 security holes found in Lognhorn during the first week that it is out. MS always crams features into their products at the expense of security. Look at Windows XP - it was supposed to be so much more secure because it is based on NT but it has turned out to be the worst of the lot. I hate them so much and want Linux to win!
Well good for Bill ,.............I really hope all the poeple of the land fall in love and it becomes the number one seller.And ,I hope we have the same amount of fun with this O/S,as we had with XP.Anyone stupid enough to pay for that crap ,diserves what they get .Good luck losers.................
