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 Win/DOS guy brought up from a Trash-80/CPM environment, tinkered with RedHat 5 in 2000, and almost ready to migrate to Ubuntu on a laptop.
My research efforts began last quarter 2011 to find apps and convert my intellectual property (files) to the target environment.
Many files were ready for porting, some were not: PageMaker, VISIO 1.0, and accounting, to name a few.
I have found software replacements for almost everything, a few must run under Wine (Garmin update, VisualFoxPro6--converting prg to j-code, NotetabLite).
For files not ready to port, I wrote some j-code to handle conversion (such as PageMaker via its scripting), other file types simply needed some rework (such as VISIO -> OOo Draw). All I have left is to write the final phase conversion for pex files (pagemaker export, an xml format) into the Scribus xml format.
I've installed some GNU apps that also work on the Win platform to become familiar with and so ease the learning curve.
I am looking forward to hardware portability and a less anti-virus cluttered world.
