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.

Humm... Other than the obvious (removing all signs of windows), I would have to say having a primary system (graphics design, webdesign, school projects, audio editing) with an up-time of 192 days. Of course then the power went out. I knew they sold UPS systems for a reason.
Just using it makes me far cooler than any of my friends, especially when I can ramble off normal stuff like how to compile a simple tarball and they're like "Wow, you know how to compile a tarball!". heh.
I'm so cool.
Don't laugh but the coolest thing I ever did was to write the classic
`Hello world' program in 5 languages(C/CPP/PERL/Java/Python).
Just having only Linux makes me soooooo cool among my `not-so-geeky, I-don't-know-Linux' friends. Also, like someone said, compiling tarballs make me extra cool d00d.
My coolest thing?.
