      "This is an excellent and FREE beginner course for learning Linux! It helped a lot when I was just starting to learn and again, it's free! Don't think it will be very useful for someone who's used the operating system before though."

      "I really felt as if I was falling behind my colleagues at work because they have computer knowledge and skills that I did not have. I found Linux Courses by Linux Academy, and I took one of their courses. It was great! The courses are not short. The course I took was about 14 hours long, but I have a great basic understanding of Linux, and I am able to utilize that knowledge. If you are looking to knock out a quick course and get a certificate to show your boss, then this is not the place for you, but if you want to really learn Linux, and get a certificate, then this is the best place for you to be. I highly recommend the Linux Academy!"

      "I was put on a project at work involving Linux, which I had zero experience with. I had to learn as much as I could in a short amount of time and a colleague suggested Linux academy. The courses are online and self paced, and they offer a free 7 day trial. There is an intro course, then from there you can pick and choose different courses. There were courses for beginners, intermediate users, and advanced types. I was able to get what I needed for my work project, but I will definitely use this resource in the future to that I can increase my Linux knowledge."

      "I love this Linux Pocket guide... the price is awesome, and the fact that it is available on Kindle is the biggest plus. No lugging around a bulky book - I can just whip out my phone or tablet and I can find whatever answer I need. Kindle also allows me to download to my device so no wifi or cell service needed. This was really helpful for me as a resource for learning the most important parts of Linux quickly, however I could see this being a quick reference guide for more expert users too."

      "There are two really big problems with computer language reference books. The first is the size of the book itself. The second is keeping important notes where you can find them again. The Kindle edition of this book solves both of these. Paper references are still useful, but there's a lot to be said for having everything you need in one neat package."

      "After getting burned one too many times by Microsoft and Apple, I decided that I wanted to shy away from those bigger-name operating systems, and try to work on something more flexible, something I could implement myself. This meant Linux, but being someone who isn't really good with computers, this also meant I had to look up something to help me make sense of it. Enter developersWorks' Linux Zone. While the site holds a lot of information, and I was able to find articles to help me, I gotta say, it's a lot of technological jargon to take in. From what I saw, it really seems like you're supposed to already know a lot of this information before you read into it. However, like I said, I was able to find what I needed, and I was able to download a Linux OS, which I am posting from right now!"
