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.

You're entitled to one gratis pass to Ubuntu Live! Please contact me with your full contact information and a confirmation that you'll be able to attend (a backup selection has been made as a precaution).

Why not attend? I preach Ubu ntu, I preach Linux where Iwork. There is a complete lack of appreciation by my colleagues, not because they don't want, but because they don't know enough. Let me attend the conference and they will knowhow important Ubuntu is!
I am a contractor working for SRC (Scientific Research Corporation), in Charleston, SC. Recently, my laptop power adapter failed just prior to my travel to Bahrain in the Middle East. While packing for the trip, I grabbed my old laptop to bring with me (it had a crashed hard drive, but at least I had a power adapter for it). I happened to have an Ubuntu live CD in my CD case. I booted up my laptop with Ubuntu, and then downloaded the full OS. I was able to communicate with my company via email, generate spreadsheets, chart financial expenditures, access my banking information and complete detailed work summaries with no problems. Ubuntu rocks, and saved my butt!
