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.

Win a Gratis Pass to OSCON 2013 Courtesy of LQ
We're happy to announce that as part of the LQ Birthday Celebration, we've teamed up with O'Reilly to be able to offer a completely gratis pass to OSCON 2013 in Portland, OR (a $1,395 value). Please keep in mind that travel and hotel are not included. As I've mentioned previously, feedback has been absolutely critical to the success of LQ. The linked LQ Birthday Celebration is also a call for feedback. To be eligible for this contest, simply post any feedback you have in the linked thread and include #LQOSCON in your response. For additional chances to win, give any feedback you may have on AQ (http://www.androidquestions.org/foru...s-amp-Feedback) and CQ (http://www.chromeosquestions.org/for...s-amp-Feedback). Note that you are limited to three total entries. All entries must contain #LQOSCON (so that we don't select someone who isn't able to attend) and must contain actual feedback.
We'll randomly pick a response on July 4th and that member will be able to attend OSCON 2013 on us. Please only respond if you are willing and able to attend the conference, which is July 22-26. Thanks and good luck.
Definitely want to go to #LQOSCON. LQ is a great place for advice on all sorts of Linux and open source related questions, and thanks in part to y'all, I've graduated from first Ubuntu to Debian, and eventually Arch, as my skills have grown. Happy Birthday, LQ!
I'd like to see more focus on hardware issues like UEFI, & lists of hardware that's particularly difficult to run on GNU/Linux, as well as hardware that's more libre software friendly. #LQOSCON
First of all, flac is the best. Too bad mp3 in got ahead of it.
Second, UEFI sounds great, but, have you checked out the 2200 page spec of pure blather that pretends to describe it? There is no spec. It's a vague notion that amounts to hijacking the BIOS and forcing people to use proprietary crap. It's pure anti-linux at this point. I could see it working the way it should, and the way I would like it to, but not when money is involved. And that basically means never.
