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.

Hello everyone. I'm Alan, and I'm new to Linux. I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 because I saw that it was one of the more newb-friendly OS's, and so far I'm pretty satisfied with it. I can't say I've played around with it much because I spent close to 12 hours exclusively on trying to get my wireless up and running (I have a broadcom chipset, and although it's widely documented how to solve the problem, I couldn't access the internet while running Ubuntu, so i had to do quite a lot of rebooting) but in all that time I did get to see the efficiency of a Linux system at work.
I used to run Windows XP SP3, but I've now partitioned that off and will probably never go back to it again. The reason I switched to Linux is because I wanted to teach myself how to program, something which Microsoft does not allow you to do very well. I've dabbled a bit in HTML in the past and made a few web pages, but I now plan to learn how to use Python and perhaps make some better things. That's about it for now, and I'm sorry if I wrote too much, but I just love talking about myself. I look forward to using this forum much in the future.
