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.

We're still looking for feedback on how often we should have these and how you think we can better promote participation here at LQ.
It would be more effective to have them at least once a month. If I post a thread and it does not receive an answer within a week I give up with the problem and move on or find a work around. It would be nice to know how many of the zero reply posts that are a month or so old that the OP responds to.

Hello friends, Zero Reply Drive is very Interesting concept, I would like to participate it will all efforts I can, for the moment I am still a student and know very little about Linux. But I would like contribute to this with whatever possible. My best wishes with zero reply
My thanks to all that participated. I think this would be useful to do every 3 months, to clear it down - but we should fix it so that the drive doesn't happen around major holidays like Christmas. So do it April-July October-January?
August would be a great month because it doesnt have any holidays at all, should work towards doing it every quarter which would be 4 times a year
Not strictly zero reply drive related, but zero reply related.
Can you automatically exclude zero reply posts from the zero replies list, where the OP has marked it as solved before anybody else has posted ?
(they usually don't post what they did, or just edit their own post to add "never mind")
There seem to be quite a few of those looking back through the pages.
Similarly, the LQ bot posts show up in zero replies as do member introductions. I'm sure they all deserve a response but they aren't actually people looking for answers, which I presume is what we are trying to service with the zero reply list.
