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: Audio Media Player Application of the Year
Banshee is slow and clunky and buggy, but it's still my choice. It works better than the others I've tried. I primarily listen to podcasts with my audio player, and Banshee's playlist/music library handling works best for a library that changes every day.
Rhythmbox can't seem to grasp the concept that I'd want to delete an audio file as soon as I'm done listening to it.
Nice work and I'm sure a lot of people will find it useful but it's not appealing to me. Personally I either actively LISTEN to music (no need for any distractions) or passively listen to it in the background while doing something completely unrelated (again no need for GUI). The really rare occasions when I want to look at the album art or lyrics do not justify the need for running an audio program that would keep connecting to the internet or unnecessarily hog my resources.
Obviously, these are my personal preferences and I'm aware that a lot of people might find such big programs like eg. Amarok genuinely useful.
