Download this comprehensive guide that is a compilation of the three-part series, Transitioning from Windows to Linux Administration, previously published on Tech Pro Research. The series looks at the history of Linux and how it has grown into an essential force in many enterprise data centers. It also focuses on some of the ways in which Windows and Linux are both similar and different, with the goal of helping to orient new Linux administrators with a background in Windows operations.

Prerequisites for users of this guide are familiarity with concepts of system administration such as creating users, working with permissions, managing programs and processes, configuring hardware such as network details and hard drives and reviewing event logs for errors. Furthermore, these tips and screenshots are based on Red Hat Linux administration, since that is generally the corporate standard, but should also work on most if not all other Linux flavors.
