Best source for learning Linux?


I'm interested to learning Linux and was wondering if anyone has a good source for learning the OS? I found one program called Hello Linux by Lancom Technologies. For $100.00 it says it's a complete hands on training program and includes install disks as well as tutorials. Would appreciate any advise. Thanks.

well personally i would say, save yourself the 100 dollars and just read ...
so with that said i would say the best source for learning linux, and the best
source for everything else, is www.google.ca i am not trying to be sarcastic
but its the truth ... just search for stuff .... and to make it more "reliable and accurate"
use www.google.ca/linux ...

and i dont' know what you want to learn, or where you want to start but i will
link a few things to get you started ...
