"So, you want to learn Linux? Well, it is a rewarding experience, but it can be complex at times. Coming to Linux from an OS like Windows requires you to learn not only how to operate, but how to understand what is going on in your computer. Many people have a good understanding of the underlying DOS directory structure and how it operates, so switching between OS's such as NT, W95, and W98 are relatively seamless. However, Linux demonstrates a new way of thinking for many users."
"The purpose of this document, is aimed at introducing users to this new way of thinking. Once you understand the basics of how files are manipulated and stored; how devices are used etc, you will find that tasks in Linux become a lot more straightforward. This is not a comprehensive documentation, as whole textbooks have been published on this topic, although some resources on the topic are included."
