Approach Linux with the inquisitiveness and creativity that has always marked the open source community: read Running Linux, 5th Edition.
You won’t find more experienced authors. Matt Welsh wrote the original “Linux Installation and Getting Started” guide; Matthias Dalheimer now leads the KDE Foundation. Their knowledge shows, whether they’re talking about system administration, multimedia, or programming.
You’ll start by getting comfortable and productive: navigating command lines and GUIs; using browsers and office software; even gaming. Then, the authors lead you into the heart of Linux. You’ll build kernels, process text, manage startup, troubleshoot X Window video. You’ll implement print, file, network, and Internet services. There’s even a full chapter on building LAMP application environments. Along the way, the authors introduce a raft of new topics, from encrypted email to groupware -- all with the clarity and accuracy you need to get results.
