So @CaptainUnderpants asked me to teach him operations and systems administration.

This will be fun.


What are your favorite texts on the fundamentals of computing?

Like, introductions to terminology and basic functionality? Not even up to the OS level, Just the real basics.

@ajroach42 Not necessarily an introduction to computers, but more to the Unix way of life, In the Beginning was the Command Line.

I have a lot of texts lying around, I'll have to see if I have anything a bit more basic (though not necessarily BASIC) to recommend.

@drewzero1 Thanks! I'll take a look!

And some BASIC wouldn't be a bad thing, if it gets in to the hows and whys beyond just the whats.

Cap is a very How and Why kind of guy.
