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.

Isn't it about time that this forum, that pretends to be for the international society of linux users, improves their user-friendlyness? My last visit it says, was on "06-03-13 at 05:58 AM", that might be on June 6, this year, 2 months in the future. Computer users should walk in front, and the ISO standard 8601 is from, I believe, 1988. Why not use that, the least you win is on sorting time. The correct format is "2013-03-06T05:58".
This 'newby' used Linux from almost its beginning, 1993, and used computers since 1959, I guess 90000 hours. Since may be 2000 I have tried to join the forum at least 20 times, but always gave up since it was impossible to find understandable instructions how to use it. Today I used an hour again and I can only hope that this contribution will be received.
I know, adding good user-instructions is old-fashion for the present generation.
What I need now is the forum's opinion about C++11, and a tip where to get that. And how they feel about LibreOffice, of which the developers try to cover all needs of computerusers in one release.
I will appreciate your comments and instructions on how to contact 'officials' like Jeremy.
