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: Windows on Linux App of the Year
I voted for Qemu. I use it often on my Mac but I'm sure I could still learn more about it. I think next year emulators like Qemu should be have their own category. The very fact that WINE is an acronym for WINE is not an emulator makes me think WINE should have its own category since it really translates Windows API Calls into Linux native system calls. I can't wait for Qemu to mature some more so Darwine will become a workable solution for running all of my Windows apps on my PowerPC Macs running 10.4.8. I'm also curious to know why Bochs wasn't included in the poll too.
I know this is a little late, but VirtualBox definitely needs to be added!
Haven't tested it myself yet, but apparently performance-wise it's on par with VMware, which afaik is the fastest VM out there. The good news is that it's been GPL'd only five days ago, which means it's here to stay
There's plenty of 5-10 minute tutorials out there on how to get it started, just search on Google.
