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.

A Ubuntu-based, easy-to-use, desktop Linux distribution developed to facilitate the access to information technology for all citizens. With a 40% improvement in boot speed and a complete redesign of the default desktop, the distribution incorporates the latest free software technologies, such as GNOME Shell, which provides for a more productive working environment while allowing high levels of customisation thanks to a multitude of extensions downloadable from the Internet. Most applications included in the default install have been upgraded to newer versions; this includes LibreOffice 3.5.0, Firefox 10, GNOME 3.2 and Linux kernel 3.0. Hardware device drivers have also been updated, while a brand-new "centro de software de Guadalinex" provides an easy way to install extra applications from the Internet.
