An introduction before we start

When you want to learn about something new, what do you do? Research! You
likely go online and look things up, go to the library, and talk to anybody who may
know something about it. Only this time, you don\'t have to do any of that. I have
already done all of this for you. You have everything you need right here to get
started with Linux. How easy is that? Grab a Coke, take this book, and head to your
favorite armchair. We are going to discuss some of the things that set Linux apart
from other operating systems.

Because of how adaptable it is, there are actually several different kinds of Linux.
In the Linux world, we say that there are different distributions. The most popular
distributions of Linux include Red Hat, Ubuntu, SUSE, Mandriva, Debian, and
Fedora Core. Perhaps you have heard of some of these. One of the easiest
distributions of Linux to use is SUSE Linux. It is this distribution that I will be
working with in this text.

First, we will look at some of the ways that SUSE Linux will feel natural to you.
It is different, to be sure. However, you will be surprised at how much of it feels
familiar to you.

Conversely, we will also go over some of the ways that SUSE Linux will be
foreign to you. Because honestly, using Linux is different than using Windows. We
will look at these differences and make sure you are comfortable with them before
we move on.
