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.

I don't like assebly... it is not portable... but it is the fastest allright
Once i programmed a loader in assembly to hack a license verification for Rhino 3D, using SoftICE to monitor which flags were being used for license verification...
I definitely vote for C/C++/Java/Python... or ADA for some stuff..
I'd program a quick 'n dirty app in Python, or Java, a more complex project in C++, and an intensive CPU hogging app in C.
I'd use ADA to program an Airplane stability authority controller...
So... each tool to its use...
Sorry to be a bit off topic, but as far as ADA, I know the US government uses it to. I learned about it when I was a lot younger, and even though I might vote for this or that language, ADA is by far one of the best IMO.
