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.

looks like some fan of this web site has written a report http://linuxquestions.org.w3snoop.com/
this part is almost the most outlandish of the whole thing
"The website linuxquestions.org is expected to be earning an estimated $2,607,806 USD on a daily basis "
WHAT? WHERE? HOW?
I guess w3snoop.com is not the place to go for creatable information
I'd question whether it's ethical to link to a site like that and help it generate ad revenue. Here's the "report":
This is a free and comprehensive report about linuxquestions.org. The domain linuxquestions.org is currently hosted on a server located in Dallas TX, United States with the IP address 220.127.116.11. In Dallas TX, United States the local currency is USD ($). The website linuxquestions.org is expected to be earning an estimated $2,607,806 USD on a daily basis. The sale of linuxquestions.org would possibly be worth $951,849,148 USD. This figure is based on the daily revenue potential of the website over a 12 month period. According to our google pagerank analysis, the url linuxquestions.org currently has a pagerank of 6/10. Our records indicate that linuxquestions.org receives an estimated 599,795,347 unique visitors each day - an unbelievable amount of traffic!
This "let me google that for you", which I've shortened because it's long, should show you that the "report" on LQ was software-generated, and the numbers are randomized:

Totally ! 600 million hits per day ? Definitely hard/impossible to believe.
On the LQ main page I see around 3000 active users at any one time. That's plenty but certainly cannot add up to 600 million per day. You would need around 7000 new active users every second to get that per day.
