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. I've been wanting to be a Linux person for many years, but never managed to find download, installation, and getting started as straightforward as the websites were saying those tasks should be. There seems to be a no-person's-land, a newbie gap; it's very difficult to get from not understanding enough to stay afloat (pardon the mixing of metaphors -- land, water) to -- well -- understanding enough to stay afloat. I should get myself into some proper computer classes. I keep thinking I should be able to self-educate, but I don't have the right sort of geeky friends to run to when I hit a snag, and Linux forums and documentation have been pretty overwhelmingly technical, so it's been difficult to make progress.
Enough about woe: I have made progress, nonetheless. I have just, with minimal help, assembled a new computer (almost certainly with lovelier specs than I need), and am determined to try life without Windows. I've successfully installed Ubuntu 12.04, and will post my current glitch question soon, if searching doesn't yield what I need.
I'm very glad you're all here, and glad that the moderators keep the place pleasant and sleek. Thanks for reading.
