Linux Starter Guide-totally free!

The Linux Starter Guide is a totally free, downloadable, comprehensive, 130 page guide to Linux, produced by Linux Format magazine.

The Linux Starter Guide is designed for:

1)Windows users who wish to learn about Linux.
2)Inexperienced Linux users who wish to learn more about Linux.
3)Experienced Linux users who would like to help their Windows-using friends or colleagues learn about Linux, but just do not have the time.

Is there any chance of duplicating this post or the LSG link on an additional “sticky” in a suitably prominent position (or in the Wiki) because this post will eventually drift down the LQ pages?

A great guide for starters. Anyone who comes here looking for answers to questions like "Can anyone point me to direction to learn Linux?" or "I am a windows user planning to switch where to start?" should look into it read through the guide.
