No course or book is "the best one," each one has its own approach, better suitable to some, perhaps not so much to others. You will have to experiment with a few and choose yourself. In fact, I think you should choose all of them, as many as you can read. You can't learn too much.

I ran a Google search for you:

http://www.google.com/search?q=linux+course

http://www.google.com/searchq=linux+tutorial

These two results seem pretty good to me:

http://tldp.org/LDP/gs/node5.html

http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Teaching/Unix/

They may not be "the best," but they are certainly a very good start.

Welcome to Linux!

Wink good stuff

Your reply was useful and educational in itself. I found more than a couple of simple-->more complex user driven free online courses. I am fortunate in that the only goal here is amusement and brain recreation but I enjoy this kind of thing more than reading the great books or going to all the movies that hit town. Cheers...sk
