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.

In EXTREME circumstances, on a per-case basis, a username can be changed. However it is extremely rare for this to happen, and requires communication with the site Admin, and a very good reason.
As for closing accounts, we don't do that. Simply stop using your account. There isn't any 'data' that requires protective measures or need be deleted. If you're concerned about any personal info you may have put in your profile, simple change or delete it. Then clear you LQ cookies from your browser (which gets done anyhow when you click 'log out'
Why on earth would you think LQ was a democratic society? Have you not seen the moderators or read the rules? I suspect you came here simply to cause issues that do not exist. If this is in reaction to having your duplicate thread closed then perhaps we are better off without you.
As is the case in fascist undeomcratic societies, it looks like I have no choice.
Goodbye, fascist questions.
Given that you post such things as:
OK i will: but if I dont have Slackware installed within a week, forget about the whole thing, I'll just stick to poxy microsoft.
says alot. There are LOTS of distros out there, and lots that are more user friendly, but you try one, get one issue, and threaten to 'leave' if you can't make it work within some arbitrary deadline? Seems reasonable, of course....what if you had problems loading Windows NT? Wouldn't try XP? Vista? Ubuntu/Kubuntu, OpenSuSE, Mandriva, and Fedora Core are all great, and are all Linux. Pick one...that's choice, or is choice 'fascist' too??
Your post makes very little sense...if you don't want to be a member, don't. Not sure how that's fascist, but based on what you've posted, I'm sure it makes sense to you...somehow.....
