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: Messaging Application of the Year
Nowadays, it seems that the 'next level' of console based irc clients is led by Irssi, which I run, but lately I've gotten into a slightly different, and perhaps even arguably better client, WeeChat - which is what I voted for.
WeeChat doesn't have to restart and completely extensible on the fly - something Irssi isn't.
The two behave similarly, but also differently, so migration between the two is relatively painless.
Thanks for letting me know about WeeChat. It's been about a week since I installed it and it feels really great. I'm considering about switching from Irssi (which served me well last year, hence I voted for it).
I use mostly Mercury Messenger (MSN client), but the linux version development seems to be stopped for more than one and a half years now, so I voted for Gyachi, which is what I use when I want to chat over Yahoo. BTW, Emesene is missing on the list
