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 live in Birmingham in the UK and went to Birmingham Central Library for the first time ever to do some research for my AS-Level electronics course that starts in september. I walked in and was stunned at the fact that I couldnt find a windows PC in the ENTIRE place. On all 5 floors of this vast library! Not a windows PC in site. They were all Sun Microsystems PC's!! Running Netscape!! WOW! It was amazing.
I hope that more libraries, public internet cafes and other public places will adopt non M$ systems!
I asked my school why they wouldnt migrate to Linux. They said "No-one knows how to use it". LOL. How pathetic... they then went and upgraded to windows XP and it is apalling.
The whole point of Microsoft's "dot Net" platform is to charge a subscription for software. As in monthly payments like your telephone of cable bill. In fact, there will be no more IE updates. 6 is the last one. The next one will be incompatible and you will have to update to Microsofts next generation OS.
They've been planning on not having any CD's. For windows or office. No setup files. No software piracy.
Oh really! I didnt know that. How strange. If they have no CDs do people have to download it? If so that is really ridiculous as what if you have 56k connection? I doubt people will take to it... Bring on Linux!!
My friends dad pays about £2000 a year (i think) for the MSDN subscription, that gets him all beta MS products though... Which is a heck of a lot of CD's and a lot of useless ones like Word, in German!!!
