very good text for getting a basic understanding of linux, 30. Dezember 2013
As an entry-level user of linux for the operation of design and simulation software in my working place, I was missing a structured explanation for all the 'ad hoc' tricks and tips that my colleagues gave me when asked. After several 'googling' sessions I found the free available pdf-text of William E. Shotts and it was just the type of text I needed: showing the basic mechanisms and commands by elegant, to-the-point examples. In the last part Shotts explains how you can use all these commands in scripts for automated operation, which keeps the text attractive if I become more advanced. Of course no text is perfect but it convinced me to have in print on my desk.
