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: Programming Language of the Year
Vala is growing substantially as an alternative language for Gnome.
I voted Python, but having followed Vala's development for the past 8 months or so, I'd have voted for it if it were on the list. They've made incredible leaps and bounds in a short period of time, and the sheer audacity of providing higher level language features (think Python, Java, C#) with an executable speed darn close to C and C++ is just frankly awesome. That, and being able to generate readable C code from it and *really* get under the hood is neat.
this is not fare guys. Fortran 95/2003 is hugely popular and recommended for parallel computation. Even as oop , its far better then other oop-special language. you should include it. this language is highly rated in science community and most of the computational physics/chemistry fellow still prefer that for good reason.
