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.

oh geez. GIMP + Blender. I cant vote for one, without voting for the other. They go hand in hand. However, i think i will have to vote for GIMP this time round, cause blender UI doesnt work with my GFX card, unless i use the standalone-no-DRI version they release, which seems to be older than the version name suggests. Cant wait till the make the UI code better, so that i can run it with 3D acceleration support.

I will just quote you in this one, since that's 100% the way I think and I've nothing to add to this
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
As was explained in the audio thread, it's unfortunately impossible (or better put, implausible) to have an award for every sub-category. This means that some apps that are indeed not at all directly comparable will end up in the same race, because they are in the same main category.
Distribution: Debian 4.0, Ubuntu 6.10, Ubuntu Server 6.06
The Gimp is a fantastic piece of software. Years ago I fell in love with Photoshop 4 and continued using it even when new versions were released (I could never feel quite comfortable under the new versions). I feel just as comfortable working with The Gimp, although it is obviously much more powerful than the old version of Photoshop which I was using. It has far more bells and whistles than I could ever use, but I never feel overwhelmed by its complexity (unlike the newer versions of Photoshop).
I am also a big fan of GQView, which reminds me of ACDSee Classic, the simplest viewer I've ever used.
ImageMagick has the easiest batch processing I've ever used, which also makes it a winner.
It's such a great thing for Linux fans that we've got so many great pieces of software!! It was hard to pick just one to vote for!
