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 first started using Linux with Red Hat in 2001. I don't recall if it was 6 or 7. I used Fedora Core after Red Hat stopped an official individual distribution. RPM hell and a lot of online correspondents using Ubuntu swayed me to Ubuntu in 2005/2006. I decided to move to Debian in July 2013 and am using Wheezy now.
The first distro I did was Ubuntu 9.04 running andLinux over a Windows desktop. The first that I did with a Linux desktop was Ubuntu 10.04 installed with Wubi. Since then I learned how to do a full install of Linux and I now use Slackware 14.0 on a desktop and Slackware current on a laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 on a usb hard drive.
