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: Video Authoring Application of the Year
Jeremy, i'm a little confused. Why is Maya here? I believe its a complete solution for Animation/Modelling/Rendering/Texturing/Dynamics in your DCC(digital content creation) work. I work on it daily. It's not a video editor.
My box has been Windows free for over two years, but I had to install it again next to Slackware recently.
Because video authoring on Linux sucks big time. I can't even capture videos from my cam via firewire. I tried everything...I beat myself up over it for days, spent hours upon hours Googling for solutions, read pages and pages of documentation, but I just couldn't get it to work. Installed Windows and everything worked beautifully right out of the box.
People keep trying to tell me that my fireware card or cable are defective, but that can't be true because they work perfectly in Windows.
None of the apps above compare to the likes of Adobe Premiere, Ulead VideoStudio, or even Windows Movie Maker. They're fun and simple to use and they make fantastic home videos with hardly any effort.
Don't get me wrong, I love Linux, I love Slackware, but when it comes to video authoring, Linux leaves me sorely, sorely disappointed.
Dang, I hate being forced to dual boot with Windows again
