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.

View Poll Results: Audio Multimedia Application of the Year
Distribution: Ubuntu, Debian, Various using VMWare
I voted for XMMS, but I actually use Beep-Media-Player, which is a GTK2 fork of XMMS. Therefore it does the same things as XMMS (Plugins, skins etc are all compatible with XMMS), but it has nicer menus and dialog boxes, etc.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
BTW, I agree that it's impossible to directly compare some of the apps. It's a fine line between having 200 awards and putting too many apps in the same single category. This category (along with the video cat) was a breakout from last years "Multimedia App of the year". The current situation may not be ideal, but hopefully you'll agree it's an improvement from last year.

XMMS get's my vote.
For what it's worth I think it's an improvement from last year.
I have to give it xmms, it uses less than 1% cpu to play my music. Amarok takes too much and I have never had an app crash on me so much. I can't do anything in it without it crashing on me. I used to use Juk as well but it was too buggy also and so I chose stability over features because it's really annoying to have an app crash every 20 minutes.
XMMS, with mplayer codec plugin. Plays everything i need, and with the nice winamp skin i got looks nice and sleek on my fluxbox, highly customized eyecandy desktop. I am looking into Beep Media Player as we speak, sounds pretty nifty.
