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.

Mercury, as a frequent insomniac, I have read pretty much all of your posts, and I just want to say that I don't have any problem with them. While I admit I sometimes find myself rolling my eyes at what I will call the occassional, shall we say . . . affectation of expertise, I can see that your heart is in the right place and that you want to learn. Or, perhaps more correctly, you want to learn to "speak Linux," which is not quite the same thing, but related. Indeed, the latter follows from the former, which someday you may or may not realize. I'm not sure. But this is just a side note, and it is of no importance to anyone but yourself anyway.
At any rate, there is no malice in your posts (usually), and I don't wish you gone from LQ. Do you sometimes misuse words? Yes. Do I think you have more interest in talking about Linux than sitting down in front of a keyboard and working with it? Well, yes. But so what? It isn't hurting anyone. People can choose to either read your posts or not read them.
As far as I'm concerned you can knock yourself out and write whatever you want (within the obvious guidelines of LQ). It livens up the place. And it gives me something read at 3:00 in the morning when I can't sleep and I'm too tired to do anything else.
So don't think that everyone here hates your guts. I have no problem with you whatsoever. In my humble opinion, there is as much room for you here at this forum as for anyone else.
@Didier Spaier, @kikinovak: considering you both well know what has gone down the past weeks in this forum I consider your most recent post in this thread off-topic, tactless and close to harassment.
Consider this a warning.
Do not do that again.
*You and only you are responsible for what you post. Having an opinion does not equal having to post it. Feel free to forego posting if what you post can be generally consdered detrimental to the good atmosphere.

Reason: //I R giving warningsesess
BTW: clisp which comes with Slackware and sbcl are both Common Lisp (as the name says), the same language. But clisp is more convenient when you use the REPL. Otherwise sbcl is a little more powerful when it comes to recursion.
'Appreciate the suggestion, will try to look into it.
And I don't know wtf happened in this thread meanwhile. Anyways, moving on.
