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.

Today at my office on a conference call, I was talking to a software development team in my office about how our web development environment is going to change. We are going to be moving from an ASP.NET C# Windows Server environment to a linux environment with Drupal.
They were very excited as they are linux enthusiasts. One of them mentioned they used Debian, another said they used Ubuntu. I said I used linux at home as well and they asked what I used. I said "Slackware".
There was a pause for about 10 to 15 seconds and then one of them said "Wow...you take this pretty seriously don't you."
I have that shirt...irony would have been that I was wearing it that day.
This makes me think of the time I went into Office Depot to buy printer cartridges, and I went up to the register to pay, and the cashier tried to sell me on Office Depot computer services (clean up malware, speed up Windows, that sort or thing). I was wearing my Slackware shirt at the time, so I simple pointed at it with both index fingers. He just kind of looked at me with a blank stare on his face.
