    Switching to Open Source


    I've been using many Windows OS's all of my life, and I've gotten quite used to them. The thing is, I believe that if I own software, I should be free to do whatever I want with it. Windows and Apple do not offer that, or anything close, so I'd really like to get very acquainted with linux. At the moment, I've been dual-booting with Linux Mint 9 Isadora, but I don't really know too much about it. I'm nowhere near being a "power user". I'd really like to get better and utilize bash a little more. Is there a guide anyone could recommend?

    Thanks a bunch for these! Why didn't I already expect for linux books to be free too? lol. Do you recommend I check one of them out before the others?
