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.

This morning when I booted up my primary machine and started Libre Office Calc, which I use for my To-Do List, I saw that all of the colors had been significantly changed. For example, the greens and yellows were almost the same and were almost fluorescent in flavor. All of the colors had a different tint. Most solid lines in the spreadsheet display seemed to have dark shadows. I didn't check any other display applications, like the Image Viewer.
I have four computers at the moment sharing one keyboard, video, and mouse using a KVM switch ("KVM"= Keyboard Video Mouse). As my machine count has grown over the years, I have acquired new switches to accommodate additional machines and new port requirements (PS2 vs USB).
My current KVM switch is an IOGEAR GCS1724 4-port box-type. Of the five KVM switches I have used since 2003, my current IOGEAR GCS1724 is by far the one I would recommend (depending on machine requirements)....
For a couple of years near the end of the 20th century, I was using camera film from the Seattle Film Works. As part of their service, they generated electronic format picture image files in some sort of proprietary format. The files came on 3-1/2-inch floppies and had the extension SFW. They also provided Windows software to display the images. I never bothered much with the image files but hung on to the floppies. Recently, I was browsing my older picture files and came across the SFW thingies....
My old monitor, a 2003 Dell 15-inch 4:3 flat-screen E151FPb, started having white-out failures, which were becoming more and more frequent, sometimes minutes apart. Powering it off and on always fixed the problem, but sometimes I had to wait minutes before the power on. So I decided to replace it with the subject monitor.
This review is my initial impression within a few days of acquisition, installation, and usage of...
A few weeks ago, I did a routine Ubuntu software update. When I rebooted after the update, all I got was a blank screen.
Actually, it was just my backup computer, a 2003 Pogo Linux desktop (http://www.pogolinux.com/) whose dated hardware is still working fine. The machine -- Pogo2003 -- was recently updated to Ubuntu 14.04, which caused me some initial display anomalies because Ubuntu dropped the Nvidia display driver I was using (Nvidia-96). The display was pretty messed up but not...
