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 can see that you are bored and have nothing better to do then try to generate polemic threads about Windows in a Linux community. Please, join a Windows forum as http://www.linuxsucks.org/ which is full of failed Linux users as the same level as yours instead of spam the forum and make yourself useful for the community...
Oh no, wait, soon you will come with a thread asking us to forgive you.... bla, bla. bla like this:
Now I see, according with a previous thread of yours:
Just so you know, I feel like crap. Here is what has been happening. I say this to only be honest.
I should have either not posted....or posted the truth. I have had constant heachaches that have lasted most of the day for about 1 month now. I have had them before too. I have been to the doctor and I feel much better now. If any of you have ever known anyone that has bad long lasting headaches, you know it affects their thinking. I just wanted to let you all know this. I don't mean anybody any harm, and I also don't think there is anything wrong with being here. My main problem is that I often felt obligated to be here. I felt that if I wasn't here a lot helping out that I may be looked at like a fool, or a "slacker". I end up looking more like a fool like this. Either way, I just wanted to say thanks to you all. Thanks for being cool. Thanks for not being a "jerk" to me. Thanks for hangin'.
However this ends up, I am OK with. I just wanted to be honest with you all.
This is your brain... ^ this is your brain after using Windows Server 2003.
Seriously though, dude, you should have those headaches looked into by a neurologist. You work in a hospital after all, so shouldn't be too hard to squeeze an appointment into your schedule. They have pills for migraines that work quite well, though I usually just take four Advils (ibuprofen) instead.
Oh, it is allergy season, so maybe a specialist in that area could help you too. A general practitioner is about useless though IMHO.
To elaborate, I get three kinds of headaches. The ones caused by allergens hit me right between the eyes. My allergist did one of those screenings and I took shots for about two years that cleared up most of it, though I still use over-the-counter NasalCrom this time of year as a sort of preventative maintenance. Then there's the migraines that are more of a throbbing sensation in the temples sometimes accompanied by blurry or spotty vision. Lastly are the ones I get from a slipped disk in my neck that radiate up the back and over the top of my head.
