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.

In the last few days I've noticed that my permanent link in Firefox's bookmark toolbar for <Linux> Google Search (www.google.com/linux) no longer opens the former search engine which displays only Linux results. It now redirects to (www.google.com/webhp) which is no different, afaict, from the normal Google page.
Putting the term "<Linux> Google" into Google gets me:
Thanks XavierP. I've also tested other browsers and OSes, and have asked guys in IRC to do so. We all get the same result.
It's just more Google using Linux code and making their own systems from it and dumping Linux along the way. They've learned well from Bill Gates and Microsoft. Google now requires cookies for everything ... even Google Maps doesn't work properly without them. They're offering all manner of services, such as Google Voice, which is nice, to lure us into their web (pun intended).
Long live Linux ... may we work together well enough that our product outperforms "their product" and we continue to have a viable tool that is not controlled by evil business practices.
Years ago I tried a search engine called Cuil ... looks like they couldn't compete with the big guys, either.
Have been using start page but now it is "enhanced by Google" ... so is my sewer.
Well so it's goodbye to old Google/Linux and welcome in the "New Whatever" just profoundly progress you don't have to like it
It's all in the way how you count and cope with progessive change, what's to like .. just use it..
