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.

He may wander home at some point. Once you Slack....
What distro are you running, dugan? You don't list a distro here on LQ. Just curious.
I do try a lot of OSs mostly in VMs from time to time. Slackware forever, man.
That post has made my day, I see Ryan Gordon and I have at least one thing in common: one of his top 5 games is Descent . Anybody interested in becoming one of the cool gamers has only to look at d2x-rebirth on SBo...
He mentions iodoom3 is not progressing at a proper pace, which is true. I recently blogged about id source ports and came to the conclussion your best bet is dhewm3 if you want to play Doom 3 on Linux. It builds on 64-bit (no multilib needed) and works great in general.
UGH! ubuntu = yuck!, I would rather use just plain old Debian stable (squeeze for now, wheezy soon) if I was to use anything other than Slackware, ubuntu is just too weird of a bastard child of debian anyway, remember when you were a kid in school and there was that one hyper-active kid that would not be quiet & sit still and and got poor grades and was in danger of flunking out of school? thats what ubuntu reminds me of,
My first distro was Slackware, and while it took study, I loved the simplicity. I've used Vector for many years now though, basically it was Slackware desktopized, I enjoyed being introduced to new apps from their SOHO version, and the Vector team does a great job at still keeping things lean and fast.
Just recently though, I came across comments about skopkg when I glanced though Distrowatch's Slackware14 review. I was both intrigued and in a rare OS-related adventurous mood, so I installed Slackware and played around with sbopkg and Queuefiles. Now I think I'm hooked. I love the power of Arch's pacman, but there's just something about Arch that never feels like home. Now it seems Slackware14 has me sufficiently hooked to bother migrating off of my 2.5 year old Vector 6 SOHO install.
Yeah, Slackware forever.
Now if Vector ever decided to drop slapt-get et al and fully embrace skopkg...
Stallman is correct. If Shuttleworth cannot see what he is doing is a violation of the users' privacy, he has to be so morally corrupt he doesn't know right from wrong. Money, maybe not now, but later, is the only motivation. Sooner or later he will start selling that data to others who are as morally bankrupt as himself.
