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
A lot to choose from here. I like Inkscape and Gimp, but for all around usefulness and features (even though it's nowhere near complete) I'll have to vote for Xara. I use this a lot at work and it's the closest thing to CorelDraw I have found.
I voted for tuxpaint. It's a fun challenge to try to create serious artwork with it, easy to use, and I really like it. I do use Gimp a lot too, but I've got my locale set to Macedonian, which is good for learning the language, but bad for using complicated programs like Gimp at this stage of learning.
Man, I was so excited when I found out about Inkscape. GIMP is old news and kind of blows anyway, my vote is definitely for Inkscape. It's one of those projects that measurably improves the quality of a GNU/Linux workstation.
With a Non-linear video-editor, audio-editor, game-engine and 3D Modeling app/Texturer/Renderer/UV/Physics simulator all rolled into a single production power-house super-burrito package, I have to go with Blender.
