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.

Minislack gives you everything you need and nothing else. I use Minislack to check e-mail, weather and for general browsing. I use it to teach myself C++. I use it to host my Counter-Strike: Source, TeamSpeak VoIP, Ventrilo VoIP, FTP and TLS/SSL3 Enabled FTP servers.
Minislack is pleasant to use. I am pleased with Minislack's performance on the desktop and it suits a small scale Linux server like the one that I manage.
Use Minislack 1.1 to avoid a bug in XFFM specific to 1.0.1.
1. Developer friendly.
2. Teaches basic Linux skills.
3. Simple desktop interface.
4. A good starting point for a server.
6. The Minislack community has a good heart.
1. Do not use Minislack for multimedia.
2. OpenOffice is not included.
3. Be prepared to download prerequisite libraries for software not included in the ISO.
4. Configuration before and after installation is for experts.
5. Thunderbird is not a good e-mail client.
