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.

a reasonable point of view. I was thinking more of the people searching for answers rather than those looking to see who they could help...it didn't occur to me that a longer thread is more likely to be assumed already answered

please ... just like mentioned, i hope you forgot the sarcasm tags, cause the search button is the one of the first blue buttons starring at ya on every page you visit on the site .. and the fourm index has a search feature built right above the fourms themselves ... which also, you can't miss ...

Also even if you go to make a new thread, there is a button right beside the place where you enter the topic that says "Has this been asked before?"
It's pretty hard to not know how to search first, even if you don't get an answer when you do.
About not starting on a topic with 13 replies...
What i ment with that is that you don't start POSTING on a topic witn 13 replies:
1) Most topics (apart from "IMHO" topics like this one) are ended,
2) U have to read thru it carefully so u can be shure that you haven't missed summat before you post an answer.
Of course, when searching for an answer, 13-reply topics can be the thing.
(an 13-reply topic seems to be becoming an expression don't u think )
I just do not like searching through threads. Its a pain in the butt.
I prefer just to ask a question, but I also do my own research (hard copy).
I always post my question. While I am waiting for a response, I will look at other peoples questions and answers. If I know the answer or know where to get the answer, I will immediately do the research and then post the answer.
I will also answer the same question for 2 different people, I don't mind. But the funny thing is, no to questions are a like. They may be similar but usually there is enough difference between questions, that they have to be answered differently.
This is only my opinion, but I will stay open minded.
interestiong point of view, sia...
I'm used to posting on programming forums where the q's are really very alike (please help me with my c-syntax. how to do a loop in c++, how do i structure a class....): syntax formatting. and imho these ppl should really find a good tut, to keep me from typing it in for a 5th time in a row.
That's my point
That really is a problem, even though there's a guideline written next to the "title" field...
Do u agree this topic is seriously becoming a topic on online manners?I mean ppl act like they own internet...
