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.

The facilities offered by any text editor to look for a string are highly superior to those offered by search engines such as that of Google or the one used by LQ>Search. To only speak of the most one elementary that comes to my mind, you can reach 'john smith' by searching with the string 'hn smi' in any decente editor, but I know of no search engine that offers this feature.
[Note: Vim/Emacs = either one but not both]
On the other hand, I have always heard of the power of Vim and Emacs. For instance, they say there is no thing Emacs cannot do. Lets advocate to the job of adding Google searches the ability to find 'john smith' by using 'hn smi' as the matching pattern. Or to add regular expression capabilities. Could I use Vim/Emacs to solve this problem?
A little light into the meaning of my words: It would be Vim/Emacs the one in charge of making the Internet connection, connecting to Google and send appropriate commands go Google. Then, to look for my string, I would be directly using Vim/Emacs which, upon receiving my commands, would send the appropriate ones to Google and return control to me.
