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.

PLEASE NOTE: All LQ Rules apply to the General forum. Flame wars, personal attacks, hostility, insults and behavior of that nature will not be tolerated. Differing opinions are one of the things that make this site great, but to benefit from differing opinions the discourse must happen respectfully and thoughtfully... without insult and personal attack. Members who are unable or unwilling to participate in General under those parameters will not be permitted to do so. If you see behavior of this nature please report it.
No, hardly ever..there are some exceptions, if I'm really looking for something specific and happen to bump into an ad about it - then it's a good way to get more information, but apart from that, never. Grand majority of the ads I meet are just so ugly, irritating, intrusive or just out of the question that I wouldn't click on them even if somebody paid me to do that.
Adverts? Oh those must be the things I hardly ever see, I don't have flash plugins installed in firefox, so I don't see that many, and anything else that gets through, I just ignore anyway - if I need any shopping, my wife does it LOL
You seem to have Google ads on your site. Asking people directly to click on the ads to my knowledge is a violation of the terms you agreed to and you can lose your account with Google.
Also as a moderator of this forum, asking members here to click ads on your site is advertising itself, which is against our rules, so I'm asking to have this thread closed. If you ever ask a member to click on your ads or clearly break Google terms by asking others to click on advertisements on your own site, I'm going to report you cause yes, I'm a mean asshole who stands by the rules.
Cheers and no hard feelings, it's rather easy to follow rules, you should read them sometime.
