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.

The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of LFS
Version 8.0, LFS Version 8.0 (systemd), BLFS Version 8.0, and BLFS Version
This release is a major update to both LFS and BLFS.
The LFS release includes updates to glibc-2.24, binutils-2.27, and
gcc-6.2.0. In total, 29 packages were updated, fixes made to bootscripts,
and changes to text have been made throughout the book.
The BLFS version includes approximately 800 packages beyond the base Linux
From Scratch Version 7.10 book. This release has over 775 updates from
the previous version including numerous text and formatting changes.
The change to 8.0 is due to the removal of the symbolic link from /lib to
/lib64 and the complete removal of /usr/lib64. An additional feature is
that the gold linker (/usr/bin/ld.gold) is now available although it is
not the default linker.
Thanks for this ambitious release go to many contributors. Notably:
