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.

In 1985 - 1986 I wrote code that lived in a 16 bit Xenix kernel. That was interesting. I believe that I still qualify as a Linux newbie. Now my XP machine power supply wiped out both HDDs and mother board so now the decision is Linux or Vista. The bloat is the #1 reason for me to switch.
