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 have it on my craptop, I like to take it to a public place and play with the cube, scale the windows, wobble them about and stick them to the side of the screen to stretch them. You can hear people whispering about it and going "oooooo".
The thing I don't like about it, I never do anything. I'm too busy playing with it, which is why I don't think I will install it on my main PC, even when I do get hardware to support it. (I am getting a new graphics card, it's worth more than my PC. It won't fit in my PC though, so I'll probably use it as an ornament or something, you know how they look nowadays.)
Nope, it's true. You have to be able to understand this though. These people have never even been able to customise their desktops without paying for the privilege (or using cracked software). Just one of the many freedoms a Linux user enjoys, you have to feel sorry those who think there is only one option when it comes to an OS.
I don't feel sorry for them. At least not for those who are happy with it... nobody forces them to not open their eyes. As for the windows users in my company: They come to value linux even though they don't know very much about it. But they know that our file servers and domain controllers are linux machines and they enjoy the fact that everything is running smoothly.
I certainly won't show off the cube to them - it will only get my weekends screwed with installing debian on dozends of private machines...
