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.

I am new to the forum, and also the discussion of e-ink, but am fairly familiar with linux, hence ,my interest in this forum. I am aware that some individuals are sensitive to a regular computer led screen, but find the e-ink screen much more tolerable. So, the question becomes why not hook an e-ink screen to a regular windows computer. The answer I have gotten back is that the regular computer hardware and software all refresh at a rate in excess of what the e-ink is able to handle.
So, my thought is that this sounds a lot like the problem that video game software based on an old computer chip has to deal with, and the work around was usually some software to slow down the send rate of the processor, or a buffer that censored the signal, and slowed the response to the software. So, I wonder if there is a software solution to the problem of a modern x86 talking to an e-ink screen. I suspect that the linux crowd is much more likely to provide a solution than are the MS or Apple crowd. So I was thinking that an app for Ubunto might be appropriate.
