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 just bought a acer aspire e15 and when I started it up I got the the root localhost page I understand that this is a command page though I I'm completely lost I have a windows 8.1 that I want to install on my laptop instead of Linux but don't know how any help is appreciated
1) I don't know what a "root localhost page" or a "command page" is. Could you take a screenshot/picture?
2) If you want to wipe Linux, then just boot into your Windows installation medium (CD/DVD/USB) and install it, it will wipe out Linux in the process.
You won't have a windows installation until you install it. I said you should boot into the windows installation medium. Which means, put the windows installer cd/dvd/usb into the computer, and reboot. Depending on the computer's bios settings you may need to modify the boot priority so the cd/dvd/usb takes precedence over the internal hard drive. To do that you usually hit F1, F11, F12, delete, or some other key when the machine is first turning on.
