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.

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.

Installed Easy Debian successfully.
Just an idea I had sometime ago, perhaps some bored developer sees it and might want to make it a reality.
It would be quite interesting if such a compiling/packaging system could be made. You compile with whatever flags you want and whatnot just like Gentoo's emerge, then it is converted into a package like apt-build or checkinstall (if emerge doesn't do that already), and then this package is seeded in a community-built meta-repository with many alternatives (somewhat like Arch's...
