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: Programming Language of the Year
Like some of the other categories there is not a single answer I can select. C/C++ is a base for other languages so perhaps there should be a separate grouping for languages programmed using another one.
Rust will be the programming language 2015, when 1.0 is released.
2016 is still open
2017 next C++ standard, introducing (hopefully) concepts (light)
so there is obviously no need to have this poll every year
I'm curious, have those who voted C++ had a Good Look at what D is now? http://dlang.org/
yes, I followed D already from the very beginning.
it is an interesting language, but the code generation it has makes it more easy to write unmaintainable code than C++ and therefore only for generic freak like Alexandrescu acceptable ( I am just kidding, but not just)
one of the greatest mistake it made was to compare itself with C++ and marketing itself as a system language.
it should have come up as a better pyhton or so, would have made more sense somehow. (GC is still a problem, look at the D talks from the DLang conference, not even the D devs deny that in high performance parts you can not use the GC and there is also a project that trys to imporve GC , but therefor duppples memory consumption ...(
and an other thing is, bringing a language without tools support like ide support and debugger in nowadays only for a very view people interesting.
