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.

for the pro-Firebird crowd out there... I'm curious about the pros/cons vs. postgresql. If you have a link to another thread or site with that kind of info, I'd be interested. The ones I found during a casual search were several years old and generally didn't lean in favor of Firebird in a side-by-side feature comparison.
MySQL for its amazing performance on huge tables. I believe MariaDB should be the same, so I was going to try moving my dbs to it, since MySQL development road has changed after the Oracle purchase. But I found that, at least on Debian, MariaDB is much bigger than and depends on MySQL packages. So I stayed with MySQL at least during the Wheezy release.
Jeeze!! All these one post only votes for Firebird. Why is it every year the Firebird schills crawl out of the woodwork? Nobody I know actually uses it...lol...
Get ready for the new!. Firebird is the most cost effective in the database that a company can have. Open Source, almost zero maintenance, excellent performance and many important resources. Several countries are adopting it. Firebird is the base of applications in our company and we are very pleased.
