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.

The university of Paderborn in Germany has announced that they will equip all new students beginning their studies in the upcoming winter term with free netbooks. These netbooks will be purchased with money collected from outside sponsors. Students will get to decide whether they want their netbook equipped with Windows XP or Linux.
I am going to keep my eyes peeled for further news on this, especially how it is going to work out, how many students choose Linux and so on.
I added a cool new feature to MinMenu that allows the end user to specify any command or program, and to have the standard output of the command or program displayed in the top left corner of the screen. The output displays in a line-by-line ticker style, at the speed specified by the user.
KDE 3.5 runs perfectly.. thus, time to settle down. Screenresolution fixed: had to lookup what kind of graphics card I have ( Nvidia Geforce 8600 GT according to vista ) and installed the driver that I downloaded from Nvidia.com ( Thumbs up for Nvidia!)
Firefox works, but I'm missing on Flash. Hmm. Downloaded flash, which is also very easily available at the makers website ( Thumbs up for Adobe ). had the installer point...
I am impressed with Ubuntu! I have just set up the audio input to my Mikomi Webcam, tested the microphone with "Sound Recorder", and it works perfectly. So thats it, it's up and running ready to chat with family in America and elsewhere!
