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.

Hey guys, i'm not entirely sure how tracking on websights works, do the trackers pay money to the web page hoster to be aloud to collect specific info on the people who view that page? or does it work differently?
I bring this up because i use the privacy suit extension on firefox and LQ didn't have any trackers about two months ago, but now there's always one, 'google analytics', and i've even observed 'google +' trying to profile me once while here.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
A couple comments:
* We do not use any kind of "trackers" that pay for access to data about LQ members or visitors. We take privacy seriously and try to make that pretty clear.
* We do use Google Analytics, but have for many years, so it's not something that should be showing up as new.
* The Linkback menu does have a G+ widget, but it's not trying to "profile" you.
