Thinking of plunging into shell programming or are you just interested in learning the Linux command line and its core utilities?

If you’re looking for an excellent text to get you started in your Linux classes, Practical Guide to Linux will be a valuable resource for you.

The guide assumes that you do not have any prior knowledge on how to execute the Linux command line, and moves to tell it in the simplest format possible. If you already have an instructor-directed tutorial, Practical Guide to Linux will be your companion.

Unlike your standard technical guide, it is more of a story guide told in a familiar language to help you improve your overall efficiency at the command line.

This book is a quick reference guide that introduces you to practical Linux commands together with their usage syntax. It cuts into the core aspects of a Linux environment and manages to untangle the meaning of different concepts and commands associated with a Linux system. Understand all the finer nuances before diving into the deeper end of the Linux OS.

You will learn:

  • What a command shell is and how to execute it
  • What to consider when choosing  a Linux distribution
  • What is conditional execution and how to achieve it
  • What is output redirection and how to achieve it
  • What is piping and how to use pipes
  • How to queue commands for execution at a specified time
  • How to communicate between  processes
  • How to use the system’s built-in help
  • How to run a command in the background
  • How you can revisit your command history

Linux for Beginners - Isaak Seel



Linux. It has been around for about 30 years now, and its user base continues to flesh out from one industry to another across continents. Today, Linux is your everyplace platform. From smartphones to cars, your home refrigerators, and Roku devices, Linux leads the way. It runs every machine, supercomputer, server, and the world’s most complicated systems.

To put it to you plainly, like Mac OS X or Windows 10, Linux manages the various resources of your computer. It’s an operating system (OS). Without the OS, software wouldn’t communicate with the various hardware components of your PC, and you wouldn’t have a working system. All the software you install on your laptop run on top of the operating system.

If Linux does what Mac OS X or Windows does, why switch? So what’s the Linux advantage?

Who said that there’s no two way about it? The difference lies in the way the various OS functions are executed.

Linux does things a lot more differently. For instance, Linux gives you the freedom to control different aspects of your system. Control the look and feel of your desktop without risking any system failure. To do this on Windows, you will need to install a third-party shell or some software patch, and by so doing, you risk corruption issues or entire system failure.

If you’re coming from a Windows platform, you probably understand better the profound limitations of a tightly coupled user interface. On the other hand, Linux is a complete departure and gives you a choice to customize certain aspects of your desktop environment.

Today’s user doesn’t want a cosmetic user interface, but a built-in feature that allows them to experiment on their own. It’s a DIY world, remember?

Linux is modular and infinitely flexible. While Windows fixes you to a single UI, Linux presents you with a dozen variants to choose from. You must have heard of the Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Mageia, Arch Linux, Puppy Linux, Slackware Linux, Linux Mint, and many others. Each of these Linux distributions comes with unique desktops and user interfaces.

    Needs proofreader and editor. (Perhaps English was not first language -- perhaps translated from another language?) Some of the examples were not formatted clearly.
    However, I did learn several techniques and concepts from this book. (I am not a beginner, but I am still learning.)
  • (4/5)
    Es bueno, pero es sumamente básico, muy bueno para quien esta empezando Linux de cero.
  • (1/5)
    Doesn't worth of paying a credit for it. There isn't anything you cannot find to any public guide!
