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.

KNOPPIX 7.6.0 Screencast and Screenshots
KNOPPIX 7.6.0 Screencast
Version 7.6.0 of KNOPPIX is based on the usual picks from Debian stable (jessie) and newer graphics drivers or desktop software packages from Debian/testing and Debian/unstable (sid). It uses kernel 4.2.2 and xorg 7.7 (core 1.17.3) for supporting current computer hardware.
In addition to the 32bit standard kernel, the 64bit version of the same kernel is installed on the DVD edition, supporting systems with more than 4GB of RAM and chroot to 64-bit installations for system rescue tasks. In the DVD version, the bootloader will start the 64bit kernel automatically if a 64bit-capable CPU is detected (if not manually specified otherwise).
New in 7.6.0:
Kernel (still 4.2.2, thorougly tested) and system software (Debian Jessie) updated,
New, experimental version of 3D window manager compiz 0.9.12.2,
LXDE (Default) with filemanager PCMANFM 1.2.3, KDE 5.4 (boot option knoppix desktop=kde, DVD version only), GNOME 3.18 (boot option knoppix desktop=gnome, DVD version only),
Wine version 1.7.50 (git) for integration of Windows (TM) based programs,
qemu-kvm 2.4 for (para-)virtualization.
ADRIANE Audio-Desktop: mpsyt Youtube (TM)-Client for console, Orca 3.18.2 for compiz,
electrum 2.5.4 for managing Bitcoin Wallets,
tiny "boot only" CD image inside the "KNOPPIX" directory for computers that can only boot from CD, but not from DVD or USB flash drive (please use boot option "knoppix lang=en" if it's booting in german instead of english language by default),
Experimental support for UEFI-Boot and Secure Boot after installation on USB flash disk.
Versioning: If many Knoppix-installed USB flash disks or harddisks are present, the boot system now finds the kernel-matching KNOPPIX overlay automatically -> avoids errors caused by mismatching Kernel/System/Overlay versions.
The live installer flash-knoppix now shows a "honest" progress bar by measuring the real space allocation during copy. Also, the syslinux-supplied master boot recoed is used instead of ms-sys.
audio devices are auto-sorted so that the primary soundcard is no longer by chance a HDMI output -> fixes "no sound output" problem in earlier versions, unless the HDMI monitors speakers were used for primary output, which was most often not the desired behavior.
