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: Graphics Application of the Year
I'm just learning how to use Fireworks, a vector-based graphics program for other operating systems. Are there any vector-based packages available Linux yet? Any that are comparable to Fireworks yet? I'm not trying to troll here; I use Linux sometimes, and Windows and Mac operating systems at other times. I'm really curious about whether there are some serious equivalents in the vector graphics editing space.
I just realized that this poll is an excellent assembly of open source products. What I regret is I did not take a snapshot of the graphics packages before I voted, and now since I voted, I no longer have access to the list. Obviously you did not want people voting twice, so I will be looking forward to the results so I can get this list.
Distribution: Red Hat/Fedora, Suse, Studio64, etc...
At the moment i cannot choose ( i use some of the apps, and each has its own merits ) ... I am leaning to either GIMP or Scribus, which are maturing both quite rapidly.
Some of the programs i did not use, i looked at today.
When i looked at Krita for the first time today, i noticed some uncanny similarities and familiarities in the interface to that of DeLuxePaint, which i used a lot when i still had an Amiga ... ( good times, good times ... ). I wonder if this was a deliberate effort... Still, just for that, it is worth investigating ...
Thanks for the list. My list is now complete. I know they posted with winners, but I was hoping they would post the numbers for all the applications. I noticed that Open Office beat out, percentage wise, Firefox. When you consider that Firefox is more publicly discussed, that is really impressive. I know there are other browsers that people like to use, and that probably took away some of Firefox's thunder. But still, it has to speak well for the Open Office gang. Thanks, and job well done.
I am a Cad Designer by trade and an artist for fun. So as designer I use Illustrator, Photoshop
for my job. I found Xara (or Xaralx in linux) to be fabulous illustrating tool and artwork program.
Inkscape is nice too. But can run in to resource issues if the file gets to complicated.
Gimp is a good bitmap image program, not as UI friendly as Photoshop
(this may be my bias from long time use).
I have to say the only tool that can do both bitmap and vector images well is the Xara windows version.
