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.

This is so bizarre it seems like troll.
There is already software people can 'buy' which is closed sourced, but not necessarily easy enuff for the average person (non-tech, non-geeky type) to work with comfortably.
Ahhhnd.. there is obviously FREE, open sourced programs, which will be the same.
In other words.. is doesn't matter how easy, pretty, or complete the distro might be.. the fact is, the average person would not be able to use it wisely.. and would actually possibly either not get any use out of it, or would possibly even damage their data even more.
This is why we have 'lay persons'..and experts.
The OP's project is missing any meaningful details.. which makes it an open-ended project, which could balloon into a massive, never ending, bug ridden project.
Since this is not what the OP, or anyone else would WANT.. it seems that logical reasoning would say this is nothing but a 'put on'.. and joke.. a troll... or if not any of the above, one of the worst ideas I have heard of in long time (business wise).
Tip for posters. A 'pro-tip' if you will: if a job ad has an email address in it and the request is that you email the poster, posting half-baked thoughts and questions in the thread is a great way to act as though you are shouting down a well. You all seem to believe that something nefarious is going on and yet none of you appear to have written to the thread poster. You all fail at his job, I guess.
As well, the ad is 2 years old.
If you have legitimate questions, especially if (in your ultimate wisdom) you believe the OP is reinventing the wheel, why not email him to discuss your concerns?
No. If you do not wish to apply for the job, walk away from the thread. If you do wish to apply or find out more information, email the job poster. It's really not difficult. And, because of this, it's you lot that are the trolls.

What are Mods 'cops' now.. telling posters what to do.
Maybe if you and the few other Mods who follow me around like little girls, spent more time concerned about 'quality'.. instead of 'quantity' (nearly 20,000 posts!?!.. lol..).. LQ would not have to worry about going down the same road as Totse.com (defunct), Digg.com (lower than defunct).. and SlashDot.com (defunct, but doesn’t know it yet).
a drivers lic. is not required in a court of law. only the signature. why the card copy of lic eh? I have had the request from outfits with no web presence trying to get my personal info for line work int the IT industry in the last month. sorry to flame you. hope you get rich. but really, why the copy of the personal info?
you would be amazed at what can be done with that.
I find it very odd that I seem to be the only person who has actually read this thread. Firstly, this thread is 2 years old and secondly, if you don't like the look of the job don't apply. Do you all write into your local newspaper to advise them that all the jobs they advertise are scams?
Wow, someone wants to pay money for a set of tasks - sounds almost like a job doesn't it? I say again - if you don't like the look of the job, don't post here and don't apply. If you don't like the NDA or the requirement to send personal information, don't apply. If you can't read and understand simple information, don't apply - note that you are supposed to email the person, not bitch and whine in the thread.
Ask yourself, if this were a job through an agency and you were interested, would you give the prospective employer this much grief?
Anyway - this is an informational post with clear instructions. Do not post in this thread any more. Warnings will be issued if you do.
