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
I use mplayer/mplayer2 (mainly with smplayer/gnome mplayer/kplayer as the frontend) far more than the others. Though I normally have at least 3 installed in case of failure to play issues, mostly vlc but sometimes others like xine or kaffeine.

Kplayer is a frontend for mplayer.

While VLC is a great player, the frontend has never been that great IMO. Not quite sure about 'windowsy', but I think I get what you mean. It always feels like its following its own settings rather than global desktop setings. Yeah, thats not the whole story, but I cant quite seem to be able to quite describe other minor niggles with the VLC interface. At least not without poking it then writing a 1000 word post LOL.
