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.

Thanks guys for bringing the two together. the Mint community is one of the most helpful around in this noobs humble opinion. Mint is truly a great distro but its the community that really makes it shine. LQ will be better for it. thanks again, time to get back theres so much more to learn......
I was since 2005 a SuSE user, but after a superfriendly advice I switched to Linux Mint.
All I can say...
Wow, what a distro.
After 1 month with it, I'm still amazed as in the first day I installed this jewel.
Distribution: Linux Mint "Mate" x64 (primary OS), Win 7/8 x64, XP Home/Pro x32.
It's great to see Linux Mint here. Just two days ago, after many tryouts of other distros, I've found my home with Linux Mint. At first, I was dualbooting with Windows XP Pro, today I put the CD back in and used my whole (40GB) disc, scrapping Windows altogether. And I'm not looking back. I was tired of spending more time maintaining my laptop rather than using it. This is a superb distro and is running great for me. A first class distro!
