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: IDE/Web Development Editor of the Year
I have to agree. gVim or vim with a .vimrc of about 100 lines is an awesome coding environ. I can't vote if it's not there because I use nothing else for cgi/html/shtml, Bash Scripts, Perl, PHP, Ruby...
Not wanting to start /that/ flamewar again; but why is emacs there but not vim? Vim+plugins makes a perfect IDE too. So either there are no extendable texteditors in here and emacs should not be considered an option too (makes sense) or the term IDE is stretched, in which case Emacs and Vim are on here.
Emacs is a complete IDE by itself, no plugins needed. Vim needs plugins to act as fully fledged IDE, so I think that is why it is not here.
Thanks to the Pentadactyl plugin for Firefox I can launch Shell commands from within the browser, but that doesn't mean that it should appear in the Terminal emulator poll.
Don't see the option I use in the list. For programming and web development, I use SciTE. I have several add-ons in lua, Perl and C/C++ that I call from SciTE to do various functions. For instance, I have the ability to check in and out files at a web site using the same protocol used by Adobe Dreamweaver and Contribute. So, if someone else where I work is editing files using Dreamweaver or Contribute, I can tell they're checked out in SciTE and I can check them out if they're not in use to edit them. It can also send files to the web site using ftp (and removes the check-out indication) when I check files in.
