Many of these first time Linux learners get so lost so fast in so many areas. The first impressions are mostly good, with them able to download Linux, burn it onto CDs, and get it installed. Once they get that far, however, their excitement are short-lived. They have no idea what to do next, how to install software, or what software even to install for what they need. They don't understand the concept of Open Source software. They don't now where to go for help. And more often than not, they do not know a thing about the command line.

This book tries to explain some concepts of how Linux is similar to Windows, helping people become familiar with it very quickly. This book also explains some of the most important differences, many of which are improvements from the environment to which they have become accustomed. This book also dispels many myths that may serve to hamper the adoption of Linux more fully. The overall purpose is to give people a bridge from what they already know to the daunting new world that is the Linux operating system. Because that world can be a little daunting at first, it’s nice to have a little help getting used to things. This is what the "Easiest Linux Guide You’ll Ever Read" is designed to do.
