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.

thanks for the ranting. You seam to have a nice lovely way to say goodbye.
Maybe I should just ignore your point here, but I'd liked the idea about actually telling something, too much
Originally posted by oopicmaster Well I may be "Shmuck Like", however, I do find it to be rather "Putz Like" to be offended because someone makes a comment about an OS... Ha, ha, ha.... whew... I mean REALLY! Do you get a commision everytime a Linux Distribution is sold or something?...... No?...... Bwaaaaa, ha, ha, snort.... So you carry that torch just for the heck of it then? Bwaaaaaaaaaa, ha, ha, ha...
And what are you doing here?
Originally posted by oopicmaster Windows is by FAR The best overall OS available today, and for the typical user Microsoft is the best company around. Period. [...]
So what are you still doing here? And I'm noticing some people really like to use the word period
Originally posted by oopicmaster Its ease of use is beyond anything else on the market. Over the years Microsofts strategy has been a boon to the industry.
Originally posted by oopicmaster They moved us into windowed computing and at the same time stayed loyal to customers who had previous versions of their OS.
something about dropping support for 95/98/ME/NT is... nah never mind.

Heck the only reason Linux evolved is because Unix developers failed to provide the public with a cheap version of their OS! If it werent for Microsoft, we'd still be in the dark ages of computing. Windows is still the easiest OS to install and learn as well, it has brought computing to the common man, and redistributed quite a bit of the power in the US. There would have been no Internet boom without Microsoft.
UNIX is not free since a long time. It costs more then 20.000, and requires other expensive machine architectures then your IBM-PC. Compared to that, Windows is a very cheap, and Mr. Gates is an excelent businessman.
He is not a techie, and his commercial aproach to a lot of software prevents fast evolution, which is why you are likely to be wrong.
I won't go into the depths of how the internet originated, but it wasn't because someone/Microsoft had a commercial Good Idea(TM).
Originally posted by fatgod Well, excuse me mossy, but megaspaz was having a dig at me. So don't get stuck into me, I'm just defending myself a bit here
Oh were you getting stuck in? or am I just paranoid? Nope, I'm paranoid... fang said, what I was repeating. Kudos to fang for that bit of info
sorry fatgod, i wasn't having a dig at you. i was commenting on the idiot poster who said mv was broken when move works exactly the same way in windows.
and oopsh*tmeister, if you still can't get it through your head to shut up with the rantings and to just ask your question, then you are beyond help, you putz. have fun with spending hundreds of dollars with ms and winblowz. and by the way, apple's the one who gave us home computing. without apples, bill gates wouldn't have even thought about gui interfaces. at least you shut up about the dos being better because there's less commands to learn crap.
You mean the Proprietary Apple, dont you? Thats why Apple, like Tandy, lost the PC war! Apple tried to lock up the PC industry and failed! Proprietary Hardware, Proprietary OS... didnt work. If it were left to Apple, only huge corporations would have been able to write software for their machines.
Both Apple and Tandy had a HUGE jumpstart, and they both blew it.
If the computer industry would have been left in Apples hands... again... we'd still be in the Dark Ages.
Before there was Apple, there was Tandy and the TRS-80.
