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've been using linux for about 3 weeks and i love it....
I got Slackware 9.1 and tryed to make it coexist with win 98 but the dual boot gave me some trouble so i flushed win and am pretty happy of it...
I do 3D graphic, modeling and want to do animation too.
I found the graphical interface of higher quality from all point of view especially color wise.
I do a lot of internet search and download and with win i'd be lucky to get 100k/s D/L and now i generally get betwwen 160 and 280 and ive seen it often going up to 350-400k/s
And NEVER had to RESTART my computer ONCE (unless i WANTED to)
Well thanks for reading if you did....
Actually, Bitstream Vera fonts are quite nice. Its never been a real problem for Printer fonts, but screen fonts are harder. Actually, most distros have a way to get the Microsoft core fonts from the Sourceforge site that hosts them. You just need cabextract and something else. In Debian, you "apt-get install msttcorefonts", which is a free installer script - which satisfies the "free" aspect of the Debian Social Contract, while letting you, as a user decide whenther you want to use the fonts Microsoft allowed for free - with conditions.
Exactly. Gotta take that technology so lovingly stolen from Apple and tweaked to be pretty. And then you recompile freetype to enable the subpixel hinting and you've got all the stops pulled! But the fonts woth a current version of freetype, antialiases, looks good anyways.
