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.

I wish people would stop voting for the same old lame, creaky languages and vote for languages that have actually been doing something pioneering. Maybe you are accustomed to C or C++, but they certainly don't deserve any best language of the year award. I picked Haskell because not only is it bringing true FP back into popularity, but GHC is constantly improving with new features (e.g., new language extensions and better support for /automatic/ multi-threading). Plus I've read some interesting articles about Haskell and the categorical design pattern, which could potentially revolutionize code reuse and compatibility.
Wouldn't mind hearing more from the users of some of the other interesting-sounding languages (e.g., Erlang, Lua, Scala, Scheme.)
As suggested last year, it would be better to create a 'Scientific Package' or similar category that would include R, Maxima, Octave, etc. R is strange for this category, and the scientific category is kinda missing.
