in reply to My first "Windows Anonymous" session

Hey coldmiser,

We've all been linux newbies once. I learned using linux watching experienced sysadmins type in "impossible to remember commands" in vi (a very fast and most excellent editor, once you get the hang of it). But watching it didn't get me where I wanted to be. So I bought the most excellent Running Linux by O'Reilly. Worth every penny.

This great book covers ALL the basics, and is excellent for future reference. What especially struck me was the humourous tone which made the book loads of fun to read. I have the second edition so it's bound to be even better now.

Another great buy is Learning the Bash Shell, but you might want to read "Running Linux" first. "Learning the Bash Shell" is however essential if you're thinking of using linux for more things than just a webserver ;).

Remember, most things that are written in both books you can probably find on the net, but if you want all essential information gathered together, these books deserve a place on your bookshelves.

Hmmm, I wonder if I get a discount the next time I buy a new O'Reilly?

    Hey teabag,

    A little off subject, but have you used vim at all? I love that even more than vi.
