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.

What I am noticing is a whole lot of one and two post wonders all saying Firebird!
Looks to me like someone is spamming the poll.
Looks to me like someone is pissy because the word got out that some actually VOTED for MySQL, especially after their last "Release/Upgrade" if you can call it that.
I read the forums and don't post too often, just like I do the Ubuntu Forums, the Firebird Support/General Forums. I even read Monty's Blog where he truly describes the issues with MySQL.
If you spend money on Oracle, DB2 or Sybase (if it's still around), good on you; but don't blame the vociferous masses because we like stuff that is TRULY free and TRULY works, like Firebird and Postgres.
