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.

Not sure if any of you have seen this yet, but he had some pretty good points. By the end of this year, Windows and Mac will hopefully be hurting pretty bad. It pisses me off that MS is going to upgrade and charge for Windows every effing year. Time for Linux to destroy these OSes.

Lol, of course, but look at what it is capable of and it is free! I have serious issues paying money for Windows. 7 will be my last one. Even now, while I like Windows, it is more what the company stands for. I will never support Apple again. I like some of the products of theirs that I own, but since they are just suing everyone over stupid bullshit patents, I won't support them. Patent trolls need to be shut down. Period. Linux has so much more capabilities because it is open source and not closed like OSX and Windows. It just needs more people so the software makers have no choice but to support Linux(for software that Linux doesn't support well like games).

I don't use windows anymore so what ever MS does with its OS won't affect me. Here is an article that was mentioned on a linux podcast. MS office 2013 will be tied to a single computer forever. So if you buy another computer in the future you can't reinstalled it on another computer. You have to buy another copy. Here is the article
That simply has never been the purpose of GNU/Linux.
beat the non free os's by making a better product for "beer" free ,and one that can and dose change with the times.
but every market has it's needs
the old " standalone MS machine " is starting to go the way of the Dodo
ms needs to change the OS to meet the needs of NEW users ( and the networked security NEEDS).
but i do not see MS evolving much
like the Neanderthal ,it was to specialized .When it's environment changed it could not adapt .
Absolutely... it's not an OS but a kind of cult/political movement dedicated to the downfall of Microsoft - the actual OS itself is irrelevant, we can simply pretend it runs windows games better than windows and that people are deserting windows in droves to join us... windows actually came about when some people from IBM dropped copies of MS DOS 6.22 into volcanos...
