Book Description

If you've toyed with Linux and never really caught on to what's happening or have used a graphical interface without really touching the command line this book is for you.

The idea is to get you started on the process of using some of the commands available in Linux so that you: Feel comfortable running commands; You understand a little more about what Linux is about; Most importantly, you start to get Linux.

It's not written for experts. It's put together as a guide to get you started if you're unsure about how to make the first move. Although it's examples are centered around using Linux with a Raspberry Pi, the commands you learn here will translate to an industrial server running Linux.
