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.

Distribution: Debian Sid AMD64, Raspbian Wheezy, various VMs

Thankfully my Win8 install is just in a VM for testing purposes so I, too, can wait fro a 64b bit browser. Seems strange to me though that Windows is so slow to move to 64 bit when Linux has been going that way for ages.
