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.

View Poll Results: What religion do you believe Linux is most like?
Though you could argue that if England for whatever reasons actually wins the world cup, it must've been some sort of divine intervention and therefore somehow some $deity helped, therefore in that case makes linux then connected to $deity's religion too...
(that said, I don't waste my time with football and hence can't argue the exact validity of that )
Since the sole explanation offered by the OP for creating a thread like this can be condensed as as "he did it, so I can do it too" I agree its usefulness can be questioned. And leaving such challenges unanswered also does not give off the right signal to the rest of the LQ Community. So I think you and others questioning the validity of such threads is a Good Thing. Warped minds, the TFH crowd, deliberate provocations, malice and hate I understand but why a minor part of the LQ Community fails to see that creating less than useful threads or posts is like soiling their own nest is something I can not understand, especially when done out of sheer boredom. We need all the help we can get to counter that movement and so it is good to see community-based moderation initiatives are still alive and well. But first and foremost LQ members should understand they themselves make or break LQ. I'm trying hard to avoid words like self-moderation, maturity, respect and responsibility but yes, in the end it boils down to that.
