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.

Still not available in the AMD64 repos this morning. Finally had to boot up the 32-bit so I could have a look. Handled my bookmarks, extensions, and plugins flawlessly. Went to the Ubuntu page with the proposed icons and picked one I liked. Looking good.
I will never understand why people using Sid use aptitude...
I think it makes more sense to use aptitude with Sid because it handles uninstalling much better, and it gives you options regarding how to handle an update that is likely to break something.
I run a mixture of Etch/Sid, I only do dist-upgrades from Etch, but I always keep an eye on what's new in Sid. Just can't wait to try the good stuff. I do not use the ncurses interface ... don't understand it. I simply substitute aptitude at the command line for apt-get and everything works. The archival information saved by aptitude is more complete than apt-get ... thus better handling of the "removal" process whan something goes wrong.
OTOH, I think it's a bad idea to mix apt-get (or synaptic) with aptitude. Stick to one or the other. One tip for people who want to switch to aptitude ... 1st step is "# aptitude keep-all" ... Otherwise it'll be trying to delete half your system.
