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.

Is that a freezer baggie or a sandwich baggie?
I agree that noob is terrible. But I am not sure baggie is better.
What Linux "commands" are available equals what command line programs you have installed. Although there are many common ones there are also many not so common ones that you may need to install yourself. So it is not entirely a question of "what secret commands are hidden in Linux", though it does seem that way.
Baggie. Me and my friends will play halo online via gamespy. And everyone has their own avitars. The newbs avitars were a picture of a guy with a bag over their head. We started calling them baggies. Now we use baggie all the time instead of newb. I hear a lot of people also saying this trendy new word. So please, continue the trend by playing halo, and saying "BAGGIE".
Don't get all technical on the aspects of programs installed on linux. I know all that. I'm was just looking for a list of common ones. Which apparently they exist. For instance: "cal" was a real winner. Who ever knew that there was a text base calendar. My friends were impressed.
BOOK! I won't even touch e-books. I rely on online documentation/people. Actually, I used to have access to almost all the oreilly computer books... but hey, not no more. I love those things, I swear those are the best books ever made. Apache was awesome, sys administration was cool. Thankyou! I just might do that. I am going to do that. I will do it now!
