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 have seen some members with over 1000 posts termed as LQ Addicts and some as Guru.
is it that if you exceed 1300 posts you become an LQ Addict ??? Please enlighten me as to how this classification is done.
well iv also done some searching as i did not know the meaning of guru, im sure i cant be the only one so this is what i have found
"What Exactly Does Guru Mean?
While the term Guru may be specialized in its exact meaning, the reality and importance of the Guru is widely recognized in both East and West. The phenomenon of an enlightened being empowered to convey awakening or higher consciousness to others who are worthy is commonly found throughout traditions of religion, mysticism, metaphysics, yoga, and various philosophies."
from this it all make sense because since i started linux about a year ago it has been like a religon to me if i ever get divorced the missus will name this site as the other person if that happens ill just get me a woman who does yoga
Very simply, "Guru" in any Indian (the India that Vasc da Gama discovered in 1498 ; not the one that Christopher Columbus discoverd ) language translates to "Teacher" in English.
Although, in LQ context, it means someone who perhaps "RTFM" as one signature claims OR someone who knows Linux a bit better than the others; someone who knows the subject well.
As you pointed out, guru could also be your yoga "teacher".
