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.

It seems funny to me to lump photographic image editing programs in with SVG drawing programs. They are used for entirely different things.
I use inkscape for drawing, and GIMP for image editing.
The new version of Inkscape (0.41) has a lot of neat new features, and they finally made the calligraphy tool useful!
GIMP works, but it is best if you are the combination photographer/computer hobbyist or programmer. No pro photographer that I know (I do this for a living) is going to take the time to learn how to use Script-Fu. No matter how powerful it is. Many of the interfaces aren't nearly as slick as Photoshop. If you are working anywhere in the double digits per hour, GIMP just isn't fast enough- especially compared to Photoshop CS.
My biggest wish for GIMP:
A way to sort through five hundred digital photographs in half an hour like I can in Photoshop CS.
I know that it will be hard to compete with a juggernaut such as Adobe, but who would have thought 10 years ago that Linux would compete if not spank Windows and Macintosh.
