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: Video Media Player Application of the Year
finished my XBMC media,internet television,DLNA box with really awesome skin.. voted for it.
on bad side XBMC despite very rich functionality and widespread platforms is bugged and hard to setup for some extra functions.
Distribution: Debian, Ubuntu, Arch, and derivatives
Too bad I can't pick three
Xine, VLC, and mplayer are great apps that (when properly installed) can play just about anything. I like gxine for it's graphical interface, mplayer for it's non-graphical interface, and I voted for VLC because it has everything covered and works consistantly well. Usually one of the first apps I install on a new system.
I use XBMC's dvd-player to watch DVD's, but honestly I think it's a bit clunky for watching videos. I'll use VLC to simply watch simple videos. I do like the options available for XBMC though for actually watching full DVD's.
Hey Hoholala, can you answer a question for me please.
I use kplayer, when i area where video is played goes blanc until playback is resumed. With Smplayer, is this behaviour the same, or does it show you the frame that the video is paused on.
This is one feature i miss from kaffeine.
