What is the best resource for really understanding Linux deeply?


You will find several free guides at The Linux Documentation Project, guides page. This is a short list i pick from there, but you should scroll through the page to find what you need.

  • Introduction to Linux – A Hands on Guide; Jun 2008
  • Linux on the Road; Nov 2005
  • The Linux System Administrators’ Guide; July 2005
  • Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide; Mar 2009 (yes, this is good for understanding linux too)

You should look for specific HOWTOs for topics you are interested in. Another date sorted HOWTO list.

There are some starters at the Linux reviews beginners page.

Finally, this is a small book available online — Linux Kernel in a Nutshell. Its in PDF form of the 2007 edition.

You should use these references only as a feeler to start you own search for things that you need.
