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.

Maybe this has already been asked, forgive me if this is the case, i have moved my interest from the world of windows to the Linux world, i have installed CentOS on a PC, i was wondering if someone could recommend a book that can be used to learn the basics.
We have 1000s of good links and online material, but you could go to a Library and check out a hard-copy of anything Linux flavored in the last 5 years, will have a very good "intro to Linux" inspired section.
Online or other?
What interested you in Windows?
What did you 'like' to do using it?
Linux is a feature sharp, and detail-rich environment, so be prepared to learn how-to process what will soon be an avalanche of Awe and Wonder.
Thank you all for the recommended links i will take a look at them in the course of this week. My goal is to change career from IT security to Linux Sys admin,i will be taking a career break to learn the new required skills. Im possibly contemplating doing the LPI certs, as well as the recommended links i would also like to have a book by my side, if anyone can recommend something that would be great, im more interested on the server side i.e samba,NFS e.t.
The only thing that i liked about windows was playing with active directory, for the rest i have no idea.
