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.

You've inspired me to try Slack, also. As a matter of fact, this morning I woke at 4:30 with *Slack* on my mind. So, I put on a pot of coffee and as soon as I go pour that first cup I'm going to install it for the first time :>)
Originally posted by Tinkster DaOne, thanks for the kinda positive feed-back
Wow ... thanks LinFreak!, I feel rather honoured.
And stick with Slack, it's just too cool :}
Ahhh...cmon there Tink. It was all positive for you man...I was just including the others that contribute as well in a general statement. I have found myself many times reading your replies and gathering what I come here for...knowledge.
Bottom line, it's people like you that make this forum what it is. And, I am not picking on anyone here...but I believe that the search button is there for a reason??? Just a hunch
Hey, I'm singing the Slack praises, too! It's installed and I've got a little tweaking to do, like my BroadCom gigabit lan isn't recognized (but the Realtek fallback is), and my Micro$loth Wireless Intellimouse Explorer ain't working (but the Logitech PS/2 is), but later on today after Chinese class that can all be worked out!
The things I've been struggling to get going in Debian are in Slack by default.
Tink helped me when I first got here, it was the best piece of info I could have gotton and very certainly enhanced my computing experience/enjoyment...im not going to worship him like so many others in this thread...
I just want his brain...... >:D
Thanks for the help Tink, your the complete opposite of grumpy in my opinion.
