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.

Just my 2 cents but I really don't think anyone makes a serious decision based on a given mascot. If someone loves a product but hates the mascot, they will probably still use it, but if they love the mascot and hate the product, I can guarantee that they still won't use that product. In the end, mascots don't really matter IMO. As for Tux, I think that most people would consider him to be "cute" (at best) but only "neutral" (at worst).
As trickykid already mentioned, if mascots did affect the ultimate success of a particular product, launching a full blown advertising campaign featuring full grown adults wearing skin-tight blue leotards while dressed up as butterflies would probably be considered the most misguided marketing effort of all time. -- J.W.
