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.

There is one glaring error in the wiki article, however.
In order to pay the employee, the staffing firm is paid by the worksite company at an agreed upon bill rate, which can be 50 to 100 percent higher than the pay rate.
I know for a fact it's usually more like a 100%-200% markup on the labor the resell. And as far as I'm concerned that's all these consulting firms really are: resellers of MY services. Most don't have ANY technical experts on the payroll at all. They're companies full of headhunters and nothing more.
Forget MS, what about vi or emacs? or Gnome vs KDE?
What's this, roll your own trolling? OP, it's usually good to post your opinion and then a discussion can open. If you don't even want to post your own opinion, why should we? Hint: it's either 1) like/love MS or b) hate/despise/dislike MS or iii) have no opinion either way. And then add reasons.
Frankly, who cares? We are Linux users and the time spent responding to this thread could have been spent installing Gentoo.
Well I didn't make you post here you could have installed Gentoo if you wanted.
And for the rest of it I agree with many of you. I really don't Like Microsoft or there way of doing Business. Most of there products suck to. Windows most of all. But the Zune Xbox and whatever else they have. I mean I really hate them. I won't buy any of there products.
But anyway thank's for posting instated of installing Gentoo.
So? was there anyone to say they like M$?
The HW they (re)sell (re)branded would be much the same if it could find Your store with the original OEM.
The XBOX would be twice the price if it where produced by console-only-making-co.
'Hollywood-cowboy' bully all the time...
What's to be liked there anyway?
