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.

Thinking further - possibly a way of us gaining an extra insight into hardware compatability we could have polls on things such as:
1a What printer do you use?
1b Rate it for compatability 1 to 5
2a What SDD do you use?
2b Rate it for compatability 1 to 5
3a What Scanner do you use?
3b Rate it for compatibility 1 to 5
I think you get the idea.
With hardware changing so much and with older models being dropped it becomes a bit of a nightmare at times to buy hardware, especially for the not exactly
general hardware, such as Slide Scanners, USB3 PCI cards and the like. I also find Web Cameras are an unpredictable beast when it comes to getting a decent
bit of kit for my Linux box.
I would be interested in poll and thread about embedded or firmware based Linux use. These are generally focused around a particular use or application. Some of the distributions and applications I have seen include DD-WRT, OpenWrt, Tomato, BusyBox, Asterisk, unRAID, Plex, XMBC, and others. The purpose of these configurations range from enhanced router (wired and wireless) or firewall functions, media server and streaming, file servers, remote access, telephony, and more specialized applications. Popular hardware these are installed on cross many consumer product lines like routers (i.e. Linksys WRT54G) and various NAS devices. This was a quick post and I am sure there are many more applications and devices I have not mentioned here.
Not sure how to poll or ask an idea I've had for a while now, here (too lazy for what seems so complex) but how do people decide what posts (topics) to reply or even read i.e. 'Zero Replies' or, like when I started, only the 'Linux - Newbie' form... I learn more when I go through all of LQ and even more when trying to dig up answers where I have none but interest me?
