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.

Aren't these the same people that have no trouble pointing other peoples 'mistakes' yet when confronted with their own, they do everything they can to avoid the subject?
Honestly, thats what gets me about these holier-than-thou christians. They have no trouble judging you, and shoving the bible in your face preaching to you, but change the subject when it comes to them. "Oh no, I never do that. I never sinned" Pff.
actually there are two things that i dont like to hear and see among the people ::
"I suppose I'm a faithful, yet non-practicing Christian. I don't go to church regularly, but I think about God many times a day, and try to do what I think is right."
and this one(a bit " incremental") ... "That has nothing to do with religion. God is not real in a conventional definition of the word, it's a matter of belief. "
try looking into their eyes ... like can feel the tickling right at the "tip" of my appendix ...
ofcause ... you need to be very advance in-order to not see the "differences" anyway ... yup , he was right as i'm kind of like seeing them as realists now ...
Ok, so what are your reasons for not liking to hear them? Is it the fact that some of us don't enter church every Sunday? Do you not like that someone thinks God is not necessarily part of the physical and tangible planes of existance?
You can say you don't like something you quoted, but please give explanation so that appropriate responses can be provided.
If you were a good christian you wouldn't build a shrine
to yourself and try to push links to it at any given
opportunity despite the fact that you've been asked by
mods repeatedly to cease and desist from that practice.
You keep on breaking the rules. A selfish and self-
centred brat is what you are :D
I consider myself to be a good poly-Atheist person, and as such I am not compelled to try to change anyones irrational delusions.
Outside pure mathematics all "rational thought" is just a
rationalisation of prejudice, and happens after one has
made a decision and is desperately trying to justify it ...
all really rational people are catatonic, and unable to act.
