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.

is working with linux environment easier than working with windows?
I'd say it's both easier and harder. What you're asking has NO right answer.
I've used Linux for many years, and I know how to configure things, run programs, edit menus, etc. So when I have to do something on my wifes computer that has Windows, it's fantastically difficult for me, and seems very counter-intuitive and difficult to use. A friend of mine is a Windows guru, and he feels the same way about Linux, while we both think Mac's are difficult.
Short answer: it depends on what you're used to, like anything else. If you've never ridden a motorcycle before, it's challenging...but riding one of those is no more/less difficult than driving a stick-shift car, and after you're used to it, it's trivial.
I think Linux is certainly easier after you learn how to use it.
I'm fairly good with both systems, and I find Linux far more logical underneath than Windows and a lot easier to troubleshoot. When I first started using it, though, it seemed mysterious, because all I was used to was DOS and Windows. (I did have the advantage, having started with DOS, of being quite comfortable using the command line.)
There is a learning curve, because Linux is different. There was a learning curve when you learned how to use Windows, too, but you didn't notice it because it was spread out over time.
Distribution: RHEL, CentOS, Debian, Oracle Solaris 10
It all depends on your skills, efforts, knowledge, how much time you take to grasp and learn things. Otherwise you will find everything difficult. For learning something you need dedication for that thing.
What I feel like is that Windows is link spoon feeding but Linux is something, if you go deep into it you'll come to know that this is the real OS....
Distribution: Debian Wheezy, Jessie, Sid/Experimental, playing with LFS.

Are you positive, or are you just taking a guess?

What brilliant bit of deductive reasoning did you use to come up with this idea? It is rather obvious isn't it? Let me ease your burden, you don't have to think I think this, I know I think this because I was the one who wrote the post previous to yours and I am k3lt01.
