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.

Honestly I do not know.Now I cannot do anything on my laptop.As soon as I switch it on, I am presented with the screen that says Recovery a required device cant be connected or cant be accessed. Error code 0x000000e.So I cannot even check or do anything.
Great that you got it fixed, uefi & Secure Boot are tricky.
Not a lot of us have experience with it. I'm 1 of those people.
How much experience do you have with linux?
If very new you may want to play with linux in VirtualBox for a while.
Also kali linux while it looks great is not a real newbie distro. Gnome3 defaults are set to run Gnome in fallback-mode & if you set it to boot normally your Kali Tools Menu will be hidden.
Good luck with the project.
Yes I am a newbie in Linux but not a complete newbie.I used linux to learn c++ and java.The reason I went fully to windows was that I needed to learn c#, no visual studio in Linux.But, I am fascinated by kali linux.Do you have any suggestions about a newbie like me who wants to learn kali?
Okay, seems like someone is praying very hard that I shouldn't have kali. I downloaded virtual box.I used this tutorial http://kanishkashowto.com/2013/09/03...by-step-guide/to make sure of everything this time.To my surprise, after I select the ISO file, and click start.I am presented with a blank screen.At first I thought it is still loading, but the menu option does not appear.
Should I download a new kali iso file?
Currently I am trying to install kali-linux-1.0.6-amd64.
