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.

Hi, 'man' can teach you more about those commands so
also you could download (or cut\paste) this script https://github.com/KittyKatt/screenF...creenfetch-dev make text file called screenfetch-dev(no suffix\extension like .txt tho it will actually be a shell script due to contents ) put it in /home/someDIRECTORY then run
conky (my current setup in one OS http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...0/#post5181205-conky-under-the-ⓢ-ascii-art) from your package manager is another fun one and grate if you want it up all the time as a start-up script? P.s: I run conky manually and can kill it or reboot... best wishes and have fun.

Jamison, that looks like a very cool program. I just downloaded it using the wget command. When I used the wget command, it put a file in my home directory "screenfetch-dev". I was wondering if you could provide the code for the following step you provided:
make text file called screenfetch-dev(no suffix\extension like .txt tho it will actually be a shell script due to contents )
When I did
It says that it is an HTML document, UTF-8 Unicode text, with very long lines
On the website, click "Raw", to get a plain text version with no line numbers, then copy and paste in any text editor, save as screenfetch-dev, chmod +x it, then run it.
I've put mine in ~/Scripts, and an alias in ~/.bashrc.
Also look at lshw, hwinfo, and hardinfo, for system information. Should be available for any distro.
