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.

Mplayer plays everything, nice look, but I don't like the DVD playback and the subtitles.
On the other hand Xine has a much better DVD playback and subtitles, but I don't like the look.
Vote goes to Mplayer.
I always voted for mplayer before, but I have been having problems with it for the last little while, so I've changed my allegiance to xine. Still, I'm sure I will use both, but I am using xine more these days...
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
Kaffeine will not be added this year as it's really just a front end. That being said, by next year I think there will be a significant enough number of multimedia frontends that they may require a dedicated category.
