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.

WINE is a good general purpose Windows emulator. I would not include any frontends like PlayOnLinux in the mix of choices. I suggest leave the top four. If you are going to include front ends to ease setting up WINE, add something like WINE/PlayOnLinux.
IMHO, WINE is mostly going backwards. WINE requires a GUI program to configure it. In the past, WINE can be configure with a text editor. WINE developers still have not think about security like putting WINE in a root jail to protect directories and files from being infected.
Cedega has made longer strides compared to WINE. The game The Sims 2 is finally known to work in it which is good to know, but I have not tried it yet.
It is going backwords i agree, maybe they should add the possibility of a cfg file, for the linux user that move faster typing than "Pumpin the mouse" I Must Vote for WINE , Mainly Because of http://howto.landure.fr/gnu-linux/in...nux-using-wine and http://www.wine-reviews.net/microsof...with-wine.html both have a little bit different helpful info. especialy VideoCard Ram info/issue with some users, and Run in W2K mode! ... got WoW running without open-gl, i need to do the video card ram fix to use more than 60megs of my ATI Radeon HD 3450's supply, AND i cant Forget the Russians!!! "K-M software" presents "DX-10 on XP NTC", it might take less than an hour to find the download some where, i had to modify my search to finaly get the latest K-m release,1.1 i think.... included the Option of the ALKY and Falling Leaf Projects instead of theres... how polite,
