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.

I am new to Linux and have a hard time reading some (most) of the posts, as I don't speak Linux-nese. I have a hard time following as I don't know what most of the acronyms stand for and was wondering if there is a place here listing the acronyms and what they mean? If not, where could I find such a place?
PS: I have found certian pages on the web that list a few acronyms and give their "meaning" but fail to elaborate on what they are used for.
