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.

When I found Slackware I found peace. Let's keep supporting this valuable operating system, to help keeping it sane and free from false innovations pushed by RHEL-hired, would-be "prophets". Thanks for the great job!
And praise "Bob" for inspiring it.

Reason: Small add.
using Linux from 2008. People had a mortal fear of slackware installed in me. They insisted that it was for real geeks. Hence was using Manddriva2008, later from 2009 Archlinux. In Jan 2013, was banned from AL forums, during discussions on systemd. Terrible people
From Jan 2013, became a permanent slacker. Never imagined the 'terror' slackware was so simple.
Thank you Pat, for everything so far, and everything that you will do in the future
