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: Would you buy a linux oriented bumper sticker?
I'm thinking about starting a small online store that sells many different Linux, BSD, UNIX, and GNU based bumper stickers for your car.
I was wondering how many people would probably buy one of they saw one they liked on the website? 20% of each sale would go to the appropriate organsiation (e.g. if we did a debian sticker, 20% would go to debian)
The reason I'm considering starting up this store is because there isn't really very much good Linux merchandise you can purchase to advocate linux. Since I can't find any, I figure I'd do it myself!
If we get enough money from sales then we'd also move on to T-Shirts, Keyrings, License plate frames and anything else we could brand with Linux slogans and such.
You won't find any bumper sticker of any kind attached to my car's bumper. Ever tried to sell a car that's covered in stickers? However, I would buy Linux stickers of any kind to put on my computers or whatever else I put stickers on. I will agree, there's not much out there in the way of merchandise to display one's love for Linux, etc.
I'd like to see the case stickers as well, make some flat and thin for laptops so I could stick a little one on the lid.
Window stickers are becoming preferable to bumper sitckers now a days, you should offer both.
How about custom stickers as well, upload your image and have it printer on a bumper/window/case sticker for a small fee.
I have 4 or 5 Linux bumper stickers. Mind you, 0 of them are on my actual bumper (or anywhere else for that matter on my car). I do have a little apple sticker in one corner of my rear windshield and a little tux sticker on the other, but they are easy to remove. They also provide symmetry to my angry Buzz and GT logo in the middle
