What's up ???

Justin here... always had a curious and distance relationship with linux til android came along and opened my eyes.. i'm curious... i have a moderate interest and natural talent for logical object based programming... I'm curious and want to learn as much as i can about both linux and basic "hacking" of the os's and devices and development... What are the best sources of information for this?

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Welcome aboard Justin! :P

Here is a link to a great book on learning the linux command line:
Here is a thread on linux programming resources:
After you learn a bit about Linux and get comfortable with the terminal and compiling from source I would recommend Linux From Scratch(the ultimate way to learn more about the internals of your Linux system):
