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.

This may seem like a silly question, and I'm sure there is already an answer somewhere, but where can I find a pre-newbie guide?
In other words where can I find some article that would help convince a windows user make the change to open-source software?
At work there are people who only know about Windows: some of them don't even know Linux is free!! Is there something to show them that explains Linux is the broadest terms and in a concise and simple manner? Most reviews and articles, even on this site already assume the user is committed to the change, and on Distrowatch for example talk about things a user would already have to know about.
Where is there something that is a half-step back from there?
I am considering writing such a thing myself, but there must be something out there already, I reckon.
