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
Although not as popular as other programming systems, Forth has enough support to keep several language vendors and contractors in business. Forth is currently used in boot loaders such as Open Firmware, space applications, and other embedded systems. An implementation of Forth by the GNU Project is actively maintained, the last release in November 2008.

LOL - are you just saying that because they're finally adding 'BUKKIT' to the language spec?
ActivePerl finally added DBD::Oracle into the base 5.10 install, which is a 'win' in my book (I know purists like to install from CPAN and all, but it's easier to just drop active perl on the linux and windows boxes for instant cross-platform awesomeness with no extra config)
Is there a reason Groovy is not on the list? http://groovy.codehaus.org It's popularity is growing very rapidly in the JVM space, and considering how many of it's siblings are listed, I think it belongs here.
