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.

hello all you LXers,
I did a little googling today trying to find a site or mailing list for daily linux tips, but i didn't find what I was looking for. Does anybody know of a website or mailing list that posts linux tips/tricks on a daily (or more often) basis?
If you're a bit more experienced you can often read other distro's tricks and tips too and filter out what you can use on your distro. I would like such a site too. It's easier to check new things out if there's such a thing. Otherwise I only learn new stuff when something breaks, I nee dto answer a question or if I suddenly think "wow having this would be cool"
I don't know of a site that does that, but if you visit LQ regularly, you can try answering peoples qns. Even if you can't figure out the answer, just trying often teaches you new info as you research.

I agree, that is the best advice you could possibly give newcomers to Linux. From forums like LQ you get a real world view of the ins and outs of linux, the good and bad in real time. Even a daily tips page is passive. Reading peoples real problems and solutions is probably the best way to Learn Linux. I can't see a more Newspaper like up-to-date format then this. Minus the Obituaries, of course!
