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.

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
Amarok has approached an Audio application in linux like not other media player has. Amarok provides advanced features, indexes your files and continually polishes its ui for a slick functional design. Those of us converted from xmms 1.5 years ago, couldn't fathom such an evolved audio player was going to be on our desktops in the near future. Amarok is def. the best Audio application of the year,
I have to agree amaroK is by far the best media player currently available for Linux. I used to use XMMS before it, but after trying amaroK a while, I was just like Wow! I never considered these things possible before I used them. amaroK just really changed the way I listen to my music. In version 1.2 it can create playlists on the fly based on my observed tastes, it shows album covers of the albums I listen to, allows me to easily sort my music per artist, album or genre, allows you to immediately fetch lyrics of a song, etc... And the most important is, it does all this in an interface that doesn't get in the way. By far the best media player for Linux.
amarok is possible the best audio application I have ever used. The only competition is has is iTunes. Juk is more useful for editing tag information, but after the tag information is present amarok rocks its world.
Amarok is one amazing music application. Album art downloader, musicbrainz integration, XMMS/Winamp plugin support, tag editor, OSD support (including album art), context view, multi-engine sound system support... I am not sure there is anything else that compares.
