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 just got the thought that for once I will not post about a problem, instead I would like to just think about everything else.
Do you recognize that extremly great feeling when you sit at your computer and just have no pressure to do anything special, just enjoying the control you get of having Linux instead of Windows.
Just lean back and inhale the almost orgasmic feel in the air, be the king of your system, the sysadmin, the hacker, the one.
Even if there is some things left to do, some problems to solve and some annoying things to get rid of (these things never seem to go away, but that's just the charm with it) you sometimes feel free and satisfied.
Is this one of the feelings that gives hacking a kick, making you people enjoying computers even more? Hope I am not alone in paradise.
This is going to get moved to someplace like
Member Success Stories, but I must agree with
you. I absolutely *hate* Micro$loth! When I
found Linux, my PC became a personal computer
once again. It is very rewarding to be able to
tweak and hack my system to suit my personal
needs, rather than having a company run by a
jerk like Bill Gates dictate to me how my computer
is going to behave. Besides that, who wants a
computer with an OS designed for every Tom,
Dick and Harry - not to mention one that has the
front door open to every cracker on the internet!
Even when it's hard to hack something, like the
scanner I own that won't work under Linux yet,
it's nicer than the alternatives on their best day!
in my dark days i got all sweaty when a pc-prob. occured.
since Slack is running, i really feel ok.
any prob. i can solve, with the help of alot of people spreading knowledge ( specially here )
there's alway something to do, try, change or setup, but it's always running.
Linux makes a poor man feel rich...
Linux gives me a breath of fresh air. I see it more and more places, on servers and on the desktop, than I ever thought I would.
I've seen it advance in 3 years farther than I could have imagined. If anyone looks back at a version of their distribution from 3 years ago -- wow, what a difference.
Take a look at MS's offerings in the last 3 years... Why.. XP was out 3 years ago!
It's so refreshing to see Linux move so quickly, adapt, and gain more users every day. A few years ago, there were major hurdles to jump to get a desktop system running. Now, there are only minor problems here or there with obscure setups. It's certainly matured.
Hi, my first post here, but I've been lurking for a little while.
Linux is still a bit confusing for me, particularly the programming side of things, but I am slowly getting the hang of it. I personally loved being able to recompile the kernel for my system. It made it so much faster, IMO. I just wish game developers like Valve would wake up to Linux, so I can dump Windows completely.
A friend of mine is going to try out Fedora Core 2 as soon as he gets another HDD, and I plan to help him out along the way. Should be fun!
Yep, a big part of my small HDD is dedicated to Windows because of the games. With the constant process of increasing the Linux users count the Linux sector will get more interesting for developers, I guess.
