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.

LinuxQuestions.org Turns Ten
I'm extremely excited to announce that just over 10 years ago today I made my very first post at LQ, which served to introduce it to the web. In the 3,654 days between then and now, LQ has exceeded my expectations in every way. 441,620 members have posted 4,006,965 times in 807,707 threads. The LQ Wiki has 7,895 articles and LQ ISO has facilitated 12,185,643 downloads. LQ even has a new sister site of sorts in Linux Exchange. There's one thing that has stayed consistent despite our continued growth, however, and that's the fact that we have one of the best member communities on the web. I'd like to once again thank each and every LQ member for their participation, dedication and feedback.
That feedback has been critical to our continued success and we really do listen. With that in mind, I'd like to use this thread to collect as much feedback as possible about LQ. What are we doing well and where can we improve? What new features or sections would you like to see? What should we be doing differently? Let us know your thoughts and as a thank you, I'll be randomly selecting 10 suggestions from this thread and will upgrade the posting member to a contributing member for one year.
In addition to our fantastic members, I'd be remiss for not mentioning the LQ mods team. The amount of time and dedication they put into the site probably goes unnoticed by many. They keep LQ on topic and on point. The work you see them put into the forums is only the beginning and for that I can not thank them enough. LQ truly would not be what it is without them.
Jeremy, congrats to you and all the mods, for all your perseverence, patience and humour, without which LQ would never have provided the haven that it has become. Hopefully, you will all get more time, and the wherewithall to travel to all the countries that are represented by a worldwide membership. May you all live long and prosper.
Of all the NIX forums out there, in my opinion this one is the best. It clearly excels in regards to on topic content, member knowledge, professionalism, and timely responses. The forums is also very good at dealing complex issues effecting the veteran user as well as the sometimes, but not always, simple issues faced by a newbie.
