Hi sameer_101,

I'm new to Linux and I am finding the book "Visual Quickstart Guide UNIX third edition" a very good start to Linux. I guess it really depends on what you need to know and how quickly you need to get to that point of functionality. This book is a good start, but won't make you the king of servers.

What do you need to do? How long do have to get there?

What is, blows Windows out of the water.
