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.

if it didnt why is linux a windows "alternative"
linux creators didnt create everything in linux from scratch they stole it from the way windows looks, operates, and handles things.
And Microsoft took the mouse interface from Xerox and the gui from Apple. MS didnt invent those either. But its not appropriate to say Linux developers stole anything. If thats the case then MS owes everything it has to Xerox and Apple. MS didnt steal anything and Linux developers didnt steal anything, They just took something and made it better respectively.
hey u guys were talikin about linux copycatting windows, well, if you think open office (great program) is a copycat of msoffice, it dont really matter, cuz msoffice is a direct copycat of wordperfect.
