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.

What is going on, simple. Have you ever played King of the hill when you were a child?
There may be 12 children at different levels of the hill, but only the one who thinks he/she is above everybody else, is the target.
I stepped up to the plate to bring someone back down to earth to face reality. That someone put up a hell of a fight trying to stay up on that pedestal.
Governing nations fall
History will repeat itself
I have to keep my mouth shut because I don't really know how a kernel would react to the mounting of the 255th primary partition.
cfdisk, sfdisk, fdisk, gparted, QTparted, Parted Magic, maintainers and authors of every partitioning tool in Linux are going to be busy for the next 10 years at least to convert their codes if the 255 primary partitions ever catch on. Microsoft, BSD and Solaris can then amend their systems to reside at end of the hard disk. Every PC operating system will have utilies and programs to create partitions and format filing systems so we could have a common standard not achieveable previously.
If the idea doesn't catch on or is ignored by all operating systems then the software is just another outcast, would it not?
