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.

Hi all... this is my very first experience with all of this and all I can say is WOW. I am an average user and every computer I've ever owned was second hand and equiped with this or that version of windows. I have been interested in Linux for years but never gave it a try. The computer I'm using now is somewhat outdated and had a version of the Windows 2000 OS that locked up on me whenever it decided to. Being the criminal that I am for even owning an unauthorized copy of windows you can imagine my frustration. So with great fear I decided to take a chance with this Ubuntu thing. I ordered a Ubuntu 9.04 CD from Canonical which remarkably arrived in less than 3 weeks. I threw all caution to the wind and and tried a full install, knowing I was wiping out windows completely and if anything went wrong I was pretty much screwed. I sat on the edge of my seat for almost an hour ( because I have an older computer ) and watched the install, which was effortless on my part. 7 clicks I think. I was thinking... something HAS to go wrong. End story is that it didn't and everything went perfect. I've still getting used to this but my initial impression is WOW. I feel like I just walked out of Microsoft jail, lol. Whoever you linux people are and wherever you are... I thank you!
