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.

New LQ Forum: Linux - Virtualization and Cloud
We're happy to announce that we've expanded the current Linux - Virtualization forum to include Cloud platforms.
This forum is for the discussion of all topics relating to Linux Virtualization and Linux Cloud platforms. Xen, KVM, OpenVZ, VirtualBox, VMware, Linux-VServer and all other Linux Virtualization platforms are welcome. OpenStack, CloudStack, ownCloud, Cloud Foundry, Eucalyptus, Nimbus, OpenNebula and all other Linux Cloud platforms are welcome. Note that questions relating solely to non-Linux OS's should be asked in the General forum.
I am quite new to Linux and just enrolled today to this site. I just posted a question about virtualization that perhaps you could help me with. I will try to lead to you my question.

Reason: Forgot title
I am familiar with KVM and Qemu and noticed some job descriptions in the job market that involve OpenStack. I am interested in Cloud Infrastructure but not sure if I have a specific question yet, but from my reading I have come across the term "state file" or "simple state file" which I believe is a type of package.
Maybe someone can lead me to some more information pertaining to exactly what a state file is.
