Reference guide, but not an easy introduction
on 23 June 2010
The opening chapter of the book offers this guide as both an introduction to Linux and a quick reference guide. I think it is very effective at the latter. However, it is a little dense for the newcomer, and was much more useful to me once I'd mastered the basics of Linux.
There seems to be a fairly comprehensive list of commands and options, and helpfully organises these according to function rather than just an alphabetical list.
