Just kidding, Tille ! Anyhow I while I appreciate the fact that an extremely competent and skilled linux admin like Garrels has taken pains to write a basic guide and has made it freely available online for the Linux Documentation Project, I still have some issues with this being a good intro for the Linux beginner. Yes, it's short, to the point and precise, but for a real beginner it is too short, too to the point and too terse. It is distribution independent, theoretically a good point, but in practice a down side for a beginner who 's way more interested in how to organize his desktop than in how to use the find command efficiently. Let's face it, there is no such thing like a command line only introduction to Linux for the real beginner. Failure to understand this is the main reason while a superior product like Linux has still not replaced Windows in the desktop market. I wish the author will take the time to write a real, complete, gentle and tutorial -like intro to Linux focusing or one or two of the main distros. Meanwhile, the best intro (and distro) I can recommend to the Linux beginner is "Beginning Ubuntu Linux" by Apress. I can promise it will bring you to the level whne you can kiss Windows ( and his licence fees) goodbye.
