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.

I am a new member in this forum, I am also sort of new comer to linux. and this is exactly what i want to speak about. I was a user of the windows siries 95.....to infinity. one day without a plan I stumbled to linux. it appeared to me in the beginning like a rounded, closed thing with no clue on it as to access the treasure inside it. the next stage was when I have found the entrance and once inside you dont know how to evaluate and do anything with it. then a little persistance and walking into the corridors linux becomes a beautiful wild horse in need of a good trainer. each stage came with its rewards and few disappointments. wow.....I will never go back to the MS thing any more. I have actually no time trying to train my horse.
I am unfortunate in that I cannot rule my home as a dictator, otherwise I would blast away winblows like it were working for Darth Vador. But until I can convince my wife that Linux is a FARRRR better OS than Winbloze, I am stuck with a dual boot system.
But I am slowly bringing her back away from the dark side...
Originally posted by danrees The only me stopping me from hozing my Windows partition is that I have some games which don't run under WineX yet.
On the other hand, I have some Windows games which won't run under Windows XP but run great under WineX - Discworld II for example.
Actually, I found some games run better under regular WINE, than WINEX... The WINEX CVS tree looks messed up to me... I guess TransGaming is too busy counting its revenue from the "memberships" for doing some actual development.
it's nice to use linux, but most of users are stucked with apps that aren't supported in linux.
My self are stil on windoze on my laptop, cause I need utils to maintain win network, have business apps for win..
