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.

I am a student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. My major is Management Information Systems with a minor in Marketing Management and another minor in Techinical Communication. I am enrolled in a Persuasive Speech class this term. I have to present three speeches following Aristotle's ethos, pathos, and logos. These speeches have to be focused towards my major. My first speech will make a logical appeal for migrating towards open source software. I have a few ideas of what I want to say. The last statement will be something to the effect of, "by the way, this entire presentation was presented using only open source software; from the slide-show to the operating system". I will present the speech using Open Office probably running on SuSE Linux. I am interested to see what other people think should be included, said, and done. If you are interested I can send you the slide-show after I present the topic.
Just a side note, I still consider myself a newbie to Linux.
