Why should you learn about Linux? It’s growing in popularity, and it’s inexpensive and flexible.
Linux is also a major player in the small and mid-sized server field, and it’s an increasingly viable
platform for workstation and desktop use as well. By understanding Linux, you’ll increase your
standing in the job market. Even if you already know Windows or Mac OS and your employer
uses these systems exclusively, understanding Linux will give you an edge when you are looking
for a new job or if you are looking for a promotion. For instance, this knowledge will help you
to make an informed decision about if and when you should deploy Linux.
Several Linux certifications have been developed to help Linux professionals demonstrate
their qualifications to work with Linux. These include the Linux Professional Institute’s
(LPI’s) LPIC-1 certification and the Computing Technology Industry Association’s
(CompTIA’s) Linux+ certification. These are both introductory Linux exams that cover
the basics of Linux system administration and its underlying hardware.
This book exists as a hands-on introduction to Linux with the goal of helping you pass the
LPIC-1 or Linux+ exam. Because these exams cover basic Linux command-line tools, software
management, hardware configuration, filesystems, the X Window System, the boot process,
scripts, security, documentation, administration, and networking, those are the topics that are
emphasized in this book. Unlike many certification books, this one emphasizes a hands-on
approach by using goal-oriented tasks to demonstrate Linux tools.
