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.

Happy New Year & Browser and OS stats for 2010
On behalf of myself and LinuxQuestions.org I’d like to wish everyone a very happy new year. I'm happy to say that 2010 was another great year for LQ and that 2011 promises to be another year filled with growth and exciting developments (including a fairly major code update). As has become tradition, I've posted Browser and OS stats for the entire year on my blog:
It is indeed nice to be back.Thank you for the subject greetings and may I take this opportunity to extend similar greetings to you Jeremy and all staff and members of the Community.
At this point in time, I cannot go into all problems/questions so I shall have to postpone all until another occasion.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.
It's patently obvious that Linux (or something very similar to it) is the way of the future for end-user computer operating systems. The days of the two mainstream alternatives are numbered, and I suspect they know it. It may take some years for the general public to realise, but they'll cotton on eventually.
Thanks everybody for being involved, and making the next step possible.
Happy New Year, and here's hoping Linux becomes major on the desktop too!
Linux will be the default desktop os. It is inevitable. As some wiser people had said long ago, you can fool some people some of the time but you cannot fool all the people all of the time. In the meantime, it's up to us to educate our friends on the truth of the matter which is that just because something is free does not automatically mean that it is inferior.
So, here's wishing each and everyone of you a very happy New Year and looking forward to another 365 days of progress and development.
Thank you for the very warm welcome and a happy New Year to you all.
I Live in Highgate, St. Mary on the north coast of Jamaica. This area has a large farming community who although relatively poor wish to enjoy the information revolution.
I am new to Linux and Ubuntu but believe they offer a great way for rural Jamaica to get into the information age at a reasonable cost.
Still reading how to use BASH so have no questions or suggestions at this time.
Worked with IBM from 1964 to 1982 as a hardware engineer, very rusty on command line atm, hopefully it all falls into place.
Thank you all for putting together an awesome set of information.
Happy New Year to all. I have found linuxquestions. org to be very informative in 2010. I read the posts all the time, but do not always login. I am still a newbie to Linux, but not because I am new to using Linux - been using it for over 10 years now - only that I stick to desktop/ready distros mostly. It looks to be a great year for KDE 4 this 2011 and all other DEs and WMs too for that matter. I think GNU/Linux with GPL/GNU programs and free software is the best way to go in more ways than one. Hope everyone enjoys it in the year. to come. Happy New Year to you all and; thanks!!!!!!!
