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.

Distribution: Fedora (workstations), CentOS (servers), Arch, Mint, Ubuntu, and a few more.

@ Mr. Sharma: The composite extension can make X use a lot of RAM .. something as subtle as a pixmap theme and SVG icons can affect system performance - why not use vi directly, by the way? FBCon gives a full 1024x768 resolution - I sometimes use sisfb - virtual consoles running at 1024x768 with 32bits depth at 85 hertz, I got chills just now #:-)
