Hey folks :hello: 

I am highly interested in learning Linux OS and its variants due to several factors most important employment opportunity's. I am familiar with ubuntu, Mint and Backtrack. However I would like to go in deeper. Can anyone recommend a good book, school if possible (Im in New York City area) and website to help me get up to pace with these OS? I know I won't become pro over night but I am building another system and looking for ways to advance my career. I would like to use Unix/Linux based system for it. I am trying to expand my knowledge of other OS outside of Windows and OSX. Thanks in advance! :bounce:

Pretty easy.

It's like those Photoshop for Dummies books.

Just lots of memory required. :) 

As with anything.

Do what I did. I just checked out all the linux/unix books from my college. Or find a friend that goes to college and have them check out the books for you. I don't know if you will find many linux/unix books in public libraries.

The best way to learn is to do. So remove windows and install linux. Or setup a virtual machine with various linux distros. Try slackware, archlinux, gentoo, and CentOS. Once you learn how to use harder distros the others will become easier to use.
