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: Graphics Application of the Year
hardcore gimp'ist, and a blender noob (still never got to the level of competence in it as i was with softimage), and i find myself drawn to vote for mypaint. if you've got a wacom tablet or penabled screen... and you're an artist... and you've not tried MyPaint yet... you are in for a treat. your mind will be blown. it makes old "Painter" look like a gimmick-ridden clumsy plastic farce.
GIMP is a very good general package, but when it comes to raw photo images I love a bit of RawTherapy, and for vector graphics I enjoy Inkscape.
Now, where is that three-sided coin when you need it ...
I was always aware of the capabilities of Gimp, but still refused to use it, and used Photoshop in wine instead. Since 2.8, and the single window mode has been added as an option, i have felt comfortable enough to switch 100%. Not only have i been happy with the transition, i've also been very impressed with the flexibility of the UI, such as amarok style dockable toolboxes ect. I am more efficient on Gimp now than i was on photoshop.
