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.

I'm a long time Linux user that finally got around to joining LQ.
I'll do my best to ask questions in a reasonable manner and, when possible, I'll answer others' questions.
FYI: I've been using Slackware as my primary desktop OS since 2003. Wow, almost 15 years! (I didn't realize that.)[OK, I can't subtract] I love Slackware so much, I even run it on my Macs, thanks to rEFIt. (BTW, Slackware64 runs beautifully on the aluminum MacBooks! More on that in an upcoming blog.)
Anyway, feel free to give me a shout or read my shiny new blog.
Happiness is a computer that actually works!

Reason: my lack of math skills
Distribution: Debian GNU/Linux with XFCE and packages from "testing"
Welcome to LQ.
BTW what do you mean, "almost 15 years!", you only told us about Slackware since 2003... so, if you like, tell us about your Linux experiences, I think this is the best place for that :3
