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: Messaging Application of the Year
+1 Especially for those of us who refuse to allow Skype spyware on our networks! Still young and needs to be fleshed out but should be ready for prime time in another year or so?
This year, jitsi seems to have really made a lot of progress and I'd vote for it were it's interests not so heavily commercialized and backed by the evil Comcast (yeah, one of the big 3 companies fighting to take away Net Neutrality so they can limit our freedom and put the squuze to the masses and rake in so doing huge profits).
The one I use the most is rcirc. You guessed it; an Emacs mode for IRC ;-P
Distribution: Debian Sid AMD64, Raspbian Wheezy, various VMs

I agree completely with this. I like to use XIRC and have used Pigeon but in which universe could they be replaced by Thunderbird (well, OK Iceweasel) upon which I rely for email from vendors, my employer and potential employers? Indeed, anyone used XIRC for email recently?
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
Thanks for the feedback. We'll likely drop or alter this category next year. Do keep in mind however, Email Client of the Year used to be an MCA category, but was discontinued due to lopsided results and lack of participation. You can view previous MCA results if you're interested.
