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.

My name is Thomas Sisson. I go by Tom and some places I'm known as MyLittleBronco. I've used computers longer than some of you have been alive. I used a small Texas Instruments computer to write my first Basic program. I've used several IBM or clone computers as terminals or home computers.
I started using Windows with version 3.11 after using an old MacIntosh. I have kept familiar with Windows and Apple OS. I first used Redhat Linux and maintained it with manual updates until Redhat Fedora was no longer useful as a personal operating system.
Today, I use Ubuntu, which is very user friendly and has just about every useful program available. It's only downfall is that it seems to try too much to be an operating system for the average user until something breaks. One cannot simply log in as root and run all of the backend tools to tweak the problem or hack the system.
That's when I come here to see what solutions have been useful for the problem I have, and to brush up on commands when I feel rusty.
