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: IDE/Web Development Editor of the Year
I won't vote. I've always used bluefish, but it's pretty annoying recently. The default-browser button won't open the browser. There is a cancel, ok, and apply button in the settings, and "ok" does the same as "cancel", and it can't spell-check special letters like ö and ä.
I might switch to Screem, but I'm not sold on it either.
there would always be somebody saying that they do all their hammering needs with a screwdriver. No doubt you can do that, but it is still NOT a hammer...
Popular assertions aren't necessarily correct assertions as well. If you count on tabs, command completion, text completion, "multi-window", spell correction, integrable and integrated FTP client, and integrated aliases/command line for launching a browser (or just refreshing a browser with the current page opened, using a light HTTP server, etc.) in a very stable and light editor is what I call a working IDE.
Confusing the WIMP model with an IDE is an entire ontological problem for my understanding.
If I do use VIM for anything is because of the easy, coding speed, mental clarity and pleasure I obtain from an excel editor. Now, If you chose anything for your own pleasure, you are on your right but it's your problem breaking your fingers with a mouse and menus, learning to use a peculiar IDE which is hiding the important parts from you or limiting your machine resources to few tasks.
