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.

"Simplicity Linux 14.10 is now available for everyone to download. It uses the 3.15.4 kernel. The Netbook and Desktop editions both use LXDE as the desktop environment and the X edition uses KDE 4.12.3. As usual, Netbook is our cut-down variant, with mostly web based applications which are made easily available from the Wbar dock. Desktop is our full-featured edition which features a host of beautiful wallpaper images pre-installed, as well as a lot of local applications such as Firefox, TOR Browser, Thunderbird, LibreOffice and Dropbox. The X edition is our experimental version and, as such, not everything will work. It is intended as a glimpse into what Simplicity Linux may become in the future. As mentioned above, it uses KDE 4.12.3 as the desktop environment rather than LXDE."
