Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

And it should be this year too, although it doesn't appear to be turning out that way
sure, I voted for MySQL, yet I wish that for the purposes of this poll I could have chosen my top three or four with check boxes.
Reason being, they're all great products. BerkelyDB is something that everyone uses (makemap hash /etc/mail/virtusertable < /etc/mail/virtusertable).
It's nice to see IBM's DB2 up there too
Sybase is what the original mACROsFOT SQL Server was based upon, although few people seem to be aware of that little ditty. The only REAL difference in the 4.x versions were that the mACROsFOT incarnation only ran on mACROsFOT b0x3s and was multithreading.
Oracle deserves much more attention than it's receiving here, and has it's place in high transaction environments where procedures make life simpler.
PostGREs, for some reason, never seems to get the attention it deserves either, although I rarely implement it myself - so I'm guilty too
mSQL isn't listed.
hm.... nope. I wouldn't change my vote anyway though - heh.
All the way..
Never had any serious problems with anything.. very stable..
Mucho data hungry seems to suck anything i throw at it.
The Copy command takes almost 1/2 a million records from our legacy system in a few seconds..
Executes extremely complex queries really fast..!! Perfect for large information systems and very good for small databases. I mean if you know your database is going to grow why not just do it on Postgres?
Oh.. you can write your own functions in PHP ? weee...
I voted mysql, because it's like a standard... let me explain myself:
-I use external servers(lycos etc...); it's good to know I can just code without needing to know where I'm going to store my webpage.
-Most people know it, gettin' support is easy
