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.

I am new to using forums/blogs. I guess I my nerd credentials are space but that's why I'm here and why I think the site make-over can improve it. Navigation is hard for people with visual impairments like me, more intuitive human oriented design would improve the site. What else would be cool is a sort of wiki style format, or github (gist) area where people can share code snippets or something. The site itself is awesome in respect to providing a catch all on types of sources and methods. It really has a positive vibe and community. Perhaps make a more accessible version thanks.
Hi, don't make a lot of use of this forumn but when I get stuck in and find a problem browsing the old threads has always helped. Even when they don't answer the question I think I need answering it often leads me to realise that I really did not understand the problem and I was going to ask the wrong question.
When I do ask, the replies given helps me a lot, thanks to you all and hopefully in time I will be able to do the same.
Congratulations and thanks, this is really a good forum. I still find weird that in the internets there are things that are older than 4 years or so. Kids these days, they don't even know what a web-ring is/was.
I think the only feedback besides "keep doing what you're doing" I would have would be to come up to some non-bumping post mode to old threads, but I've made this suggestion before and the other posters mentioned that anti-necromancy isn't that radical over here, as long as the new post(s) really add something relevant rather than just cluelessly trying to help the guy from years ago or mentioning they have a similar problem that may not even be related.
I'm new to actual success with Linux. This forum has been helpful since I found it a few months ago, although once I finally got a distro installed my experience has been fairly smooth. I can come here and search to get answers or just spend time reading and learning. I expect to have more to contribute once I get experience.
Jeremy, thank you for your great job! Very useful site. English is not my native languarge. So your site is not the first one I use but it is in my favourites. I look for my problems solution very often but very rarely post my own messages(I'm not very experienced in *nixs).
I'm a usual user of Windows and I use Linux for many years in an effort to understanding more of this SO and is with great satisfaction that I can use this forum to solve the problems that I have, with users with a great knowledge ready to colaborate with the beginners.
@Jeremy, I have been a user of Linux since 1996, sad to say I finally just registered in December of 2013. I have been coming here for years to get my questions answered. Thanks so much for keeping this site around and relevant.
