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.

Fedora 25 Screencast and Screenshots
Fedora 25 Screencast
Fedora 25 has been released. This release includes a plugin for MP3 decoding such as playing music. If you play a MP3 file from your collection, GNOME Software detects it and helps you install the plugin. For developers, Fedora 25 Workstation introduces improved Flatpak support. These enhancements now make it easier to install, update and remove Flatpak software. The improvements make this application packaging standard more user friendly.
The default environment comes courtesy of the GNOME community. They’ve put a great deal of effort into the newest 3.22 release. Examples of improvements include:
Multiple file renaming in the Files app
Integrated compressed file capabilities in Files
New, redesigned keyboard settings tool
Revamped landing page in the Software app
Easier category browsing in Software
Variable speed playback in Videos
…and much more!
Wayland display server
Wayland now replaces the old X11 display server by default. Its goal is to provide a smoother, richer experience when navigating Fedora Workstation. Like all software, there may still be some bugs. You can still choose the old X11 server if required. After selecting the login user, use the settings icon to switch. But this newer display server is designed to keep up with the modern OS and hardware.
Fedora Media Writer
The new Fedora Media Writer makes it easier than ever to download and install Fedora Workstation. You can also use it to download and install other Fedora editions, Spins, or Labs. This tool helps you find and download the current Fedora release and write to removable media like a USB stick. You can then “test drive” the OS live. If you like the experience, you can then install Fedora to your system. While Live USB has been around for a while, the Fedora Media Writer is a highly polished and user-friendly experience.
MP3 decoding support
This release includes a plugin for MP3 decoding such as playing music. If you play a MP3 file from your collection, GNOME Software detects it and helps you install the plugin.
For developers, Fedora 25 Workstation introduces improved Flatpak support. These enhancements now make it easier to install, update and remove Flatpak software. The improvements make this application packaging standard more user friendly.
Extensions don’t expire
Finally, GNOME Shell extensions are no longer compatibility checked against the GNOME Shell version. This check was required in the early days of GNOME 3 because interfaces underneath were changing quickly. Now these interfaces have stabilized. So your extensions will work better from release to release.
