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.

git, not only because it enables everything I need in a VCS, but additionally features the possibility to import from, and commits to other VCS's like subversion and bazaar so I can still work together with people/teams that prefer those other VCS's without having to learn all the quircks of those.
Our company moved to git from SCCS in 2007 and we never regretted that move. An additional reason then to choose for git was that it built out of the box and was up and running within 4 hours on HP-UX 64bit. I tried svn before that and gave up after 4 days because of the shitload of unbuildable dependencies. In a perfect world choices might have been different, but HP-UX still is far beyond the view of the average programmer.
Note added 2013-12-31: The best ever GUI to a VCS is perforce' p4v. *everything* in its GUI is intuitive and to-the-point.
