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.

From the review I read in Maximum PC, I would say avoid it. They are not upgradable. They use a motherboard the size of a cd case, with only one expansion slot if I remember correctly. If you only type emails and the like it may be fine, but other than that I have heard they are junk. And it may just be my own bias but why would anyone want Lindows?
i think those boxen run the via eden/epia boards, with c3 processors, a 1000mhz c3 is ~ the same performance as a 600mhz p3, so they are pretty naff for anything demanding. just buy second hand and put it together yourself, much cheaper, and better spec,
I have purchased several "barebones" machines from ebay, and added what I felt would sell and have had no problems with any of them. I am preferential to AMD though but food for thought I just picked up an XP1800+ and an XP2400+ both for less than $150.00 not including the shipping.
