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, using Zorin 6 for about 2 months. Our home computer was running Windows XP and it got so slow, and I looked into Linux. So far my old computer runs must faster and I am enjoying exploring using the terminal commands as suggested on forums like this. The Zorin OS is easy to understand for a newbie like me. (Not an ad, just an opinion.)
I was able to lose my desktop panels and tool bars but found them with help from the Zorin Forum. I look forward to getting ideas here and there going forward.
It seems that people share their hardware, so here's what I found out with a terminal command, which I don't remember:
Product Name: KY821AA-ABA CQ5110Y
Socket Designation: Socket AM2
AMD 7550 Dual-Core Processor
VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] (rev a2)
The video card was my only real issue when downloading Zorin after a live trial. (What a great idea trying it out live is!) I searched all over the internet for suggestions and found a download, using another terminal command, that fixed the issues immediately.
I enjoy the camaraderie in the forums and I thank you all in advance for your help.
