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.

I'm amazed by how many people signed up to LQ to just
give their FireBird statement; chances are we won't
hear back from them until next years poll Unless,
of course, they use several different logins each time.
I mentioned both Postgres and Firebird, but I actually voted for Firebird;-) I've been using Firebird/Interbase since 2000 when Borland was gracious enough to release the source code.
I hope you're wrong about the posting only for Firebird votes. People who are using Firebird know what they're doing. So I would think they would be the types who would have *much* to contribute to the community;-)
Still, it's nice that it sparked an interest in people signing up to LQ. Whatever gets more people involved is good. There are so *many* questions to be answered here and not enough people to answer them! Thanks Tinkster and other Moderators for all your hard work answering questions and making this a great place to come for help!
It's Postgres or PostgreSQL, not postgre. It USED
to be postgres and a year, and at some stage the community
made the (in my not so humble opinion) silly move to
calling it PostgreSQL, which confused a few people about
both the name and its pronunciation.
It's pronounced postgres-queue-ell, and as far as
I'm concerned the -queue-ell is optional.
