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.

Even though we really have ton's of threads asking this, well, maybe not the age too but you could get alot of this info maybe looking at the existing threads and possibly get the age by the members profile.
Duh! 2,450 pages to browse the members list and no age factor. Maybe I should rewrite this thread to be a survey form? I don't know how to do it BTW.
Favorite distro: Gentoo
Gentoo has the best package manager. But I still like Red Hat because it has great configuration tools. And Knoppix, because it runs directly from my CD-ROM drive and it's there for me if anything goes wrong.
So far I don't see any trend in the use of distros vis-a vis age/work.
I was expecting younger users using gentoo,lfs,and the like yet there is a 15 year old using redhat. Hope to have a clearer trend as more posts come.
age: 22 occupation: home care aide location: south oregon coast preferred distro: JAMD linux. However 2 days ago my webcam software spontaneously stopped working with JAMD so for webcam purposes only I jumped to RedHat 9. JAMD is the best though *sniffle*.
