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.

View Poll Results: Audio Media Player Application of the Year
XMMS all the way.
It is perfect for me - stable, VERY FAST, plays everything i need it to, has lots of plugins.
Now, amarok is pretty good as an idea but is a bit slow and buggy...
And the sound quality is not as near as good as this in XMMS (At least on my system).
Plus, the amarok equalizer's pretty weak, I think.
The only bad thing about XMMS I can think of is it's rubby fonts, because it is written in GTK1. I've tried Audacious and Beep, BMPx but they all have their problems and are slow.
So, for now: XMMS. I hope the other players continue their development and come to a phase when they're fast and stable enough and play everything.
