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.

AFK, Dawn of Time, Circle, Smaug, and several other codebase/servers are all Linux based. They are exciting to play. They make it fun to create worlds for other people to play.
There's about 1800 MUDs listed on mudconnector.com.
MUDs involve resource management, strategy, expression, quick thinking, exploration, problem solving, competition and cooperation.
These games are run mostly on Linux servers. Most of the codebases (server software) are open source and free. I use programable telnet clients, gmudix and tiny fugue, to connect.
When the codebase tools are improved so that the mechanics of creation can keep up with the creative urges of the administrator/owner/builders, then "world creation" will be among the "favorite games" of many of us.
What am I doing here instead of playing a MUD? Bye!
FreeCiv is like crack ... it's scary! But then, so is Frozen Bubble, so this was a really tough choice for me. I had to go with FreeCiv in the end, just because I end up spending hours playing it, whereas I just open up Frozen Bubble at random when I'm bored and quit after maybe 15 minutes.
