I see an ad with that heading on this site quite often. To me this is on the ethical level as the ads that promise to make a person an MCSE in 2-4 weeks. If the claim in the ad is true I guess I must be really stupid, because I've been learning Linux daily for at least a couple of years now, and I still consider myself a newbie with a lot to learn. However, I've met some very smart people online and in real life, and not a one of them ever claimed to have learned Linux in a week either.

Everything else on this site has always seemed very ethical to me so I wonder why such an ad would be allowed.

This is probably a "jimmo" question but my guess is that Google ads are not discriminate and just display anything with the word "Linux" in it.

I have a book on my shelf that says "Teach Yourself Linux in 24 hours".
It's kind off accurate, actually : it consists of 24 chapters that take about 1 hour to work through.

but seriously, I see your point. While a 1 week crash course (or even 24 1 hour lessons) migh be sufficient to get your bearings, you don't stop learning after that, and it would probably take more than a week to become a half decent sysadmin - on any operating system.

But then, as trip says, Google Ads just adds ads that, according to some algorithm, match te content of the site in question.

Hi!
A lot of advertisements promises something,but do not fulfill them. How could a person learn about a technology in few days.
