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.

View Poll Results: What do you think of the new fonts?
It's buggered my conky weather alignment up - just noticed that the temperatures don't line up any more. Job for another day that I think though - more pressing matters at the moment unfortunately like merging .new files!
Upstream at least liked the previously patented bytecode interpreter enough to make it the new default and treat the change as a day of celebration. Myself, I'm not entirely sure. I use all free fonts, and my understanding is that most of those don't include bytecode. However, I will say this -- the fonts look much closer to the rendering on Windows and OS X, and the rendering on other Linux distributions is also likely to be pretty close to this.
I'm pretty much used to it now, but it wasn't love at first sight. Had to change a few things in Firefox.
Distribution: Slackware 14 (Server),Suse 13.1 (Desktop),, Mepis on the wifes lappy
Have a quite strange font problem here where everything looks OK at first glance, but when you look closely, and most noticable on websites, any letter with a sloped element to it, (i.e. x,w,k) look almost as if every alternate vertical/horizontal pixel in missing and it therefore gives the impression of being washed out. This also affects the drop down menus' in both Firefox, Seamonkey and Google Chrome, but not native KDE programs. Anyone come across this and know what might be causing it?
