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.

definately missing MPD/MPC, great daemon/client for playing music in the background, works really well with keybinds. I was using XMMS until I found out about MPD, it uses alot less reources then XMMS (xmms = 3-5% cpu, MPD = 0-1%) and doesnt ever crash when you have playlists of over 6k songs. Also supports many, many formats.
Don't forget a category music with tools as ardour, rosegarden, ecamegapedal, jack and so on.
For me Agnula/Demudi is the best, but it is not in this list. I was thinking at linux was about choice and it is no "other" option in this list to add what is the best software for us, if it is not allready listed.
XMMS is just another version of winamp. Amarok has a great interface and it can play just everything even WMA's. it intergrates with K3B very well for burnning your music directlly from the player. it can bulid a library for your music folders and it has a great internet connection with WIKIPEDIA for lyrics and Artisis information. i wonder if AMAROK developers are thinking about adding Video codecs for it and it will be the Master Linux Application for playing MultiMedia files
