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.

PLEASE NOTE: All LQ Rules apply to the General forum. Flame wars, personal attacks, hostility, insults and behavior of that nature will not be tolerated. Differing opinions are one of the things that make this site great, but to benefit from differing opinions the discourse must happen respectfully and thoughtfully... without insult or personal attack. Members who are unable or unwilling to participate in General under those parameters will not be permitted to do so. If you see behavior of this nature please report it.
In economics, they teach you that the definition of "money" is anything that performs the function of money.
The best OS is the one that gets the job done......What is interesting to note is that, for a large portion of the computing public, the choice of OS makes ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE. And yet, when the Colossus of Redmond issues an update to Windows, people flock to buy it. Why? to be current, to be not left behind...whatever. Did you know you have the choice to use a free OS where there are **free** incremental improvements? "Leave me alone, you kook."
My favorite OS is my Linux/Windows hybrid where everyone is very happy in Linux until they can't figure out how to something and are too lazy to figure it out in Linux so they utter an expletive, reboot to Windows, get the work done, and then hurry back to Linux.......whew!!
This box has three users--2 of whom do not know how to reboot to Windows--and NEVER need to.
Oh, and I don't like polls.......
This question is not Linux specific, therefore it doesn't go in any forum that begins "Linux-". It's not *BSD or any OS specific and it's not Technical at all. So it fits in General. Which is why I moved it here.
