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.

I work for a global company that is considered a leader in its particular industry. Our IT systems are primarily Windows based.
I was recently approached by a colleague who informed me he would be presenting at the next company communications meeting. He asked upper management if he could address the organization with a presentation he will call "Linux, A Disruptive Technology." What is meant by this is that Linux has the potential to "disrupt" the windows-entrenched corporate America/world. He asked if I would be interested in assisting in this presentation by beginning to collect some clippings of articles or links having to do with the breakthoughs that Linux is making where the old monopoly is being challenged.

Most of them are articles highlighting positive aspects of linux or dealing with linux's success here and there, or why people are adopting it. Some may be outdated info, but here it is:
