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.

Previously I mentioned I was working on a series of mini-games for Linux meant to help teach the Latin language. I am hoping to have a release ready for the first mini-game by the end of the winter break.
I now have a mailing list set up for the project. If you would like to be informed of the first release, or if you have any questions, please consider subscribing to the list:
I would like to recommend KmPlot, the "Mathematical Function Plotter." I have been looking for a software tool I could use to make quick displays of functions, for the purpose mainly of double checking my math homework.
Previously I used Fung-calc, but evidently the code is getting rather old and has a number of issues causing the software to be marked as not-recommended in my distribution. I do not use KDE, but KmPlot provides an attractive and versatile user interface...
Finally getting the first minor game in the series to a semi-attractive state. I've got one title screen music track and one in-game music track. I still need to add game-level capabilities (for variable difficulty), to make the interface much more colorful, and to add more words. But everything seems to be moving a long at much better a pace than my previous projects.
Lusus is a project I recently started working on. It is supposed to be set of games to help teach beginning Latin. I /just/ integrated in a very rough ClanLib GUI for one game. Improvements to the interface and attractiveness, plus more games, should be coming shortly.
