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.

As long as it works with FireFox it benefits me. But strangly enougth many rivals of Microsoft develop for IE (Intenet Explorer) instead.
Take sony(Playstation vs XBOX) for example: http://www.connect.com/non_ie.html
I have tried it & it works great on Linux. The only reason I have been duel booting w/windows was b/c of Musicmatch. I have since cancelled my Musicmatch subsription & joined Rhapsody. Although it is $10 a month instead of $7, I have found that Rhapsody is much better than Musicmatch in almost everyway. You can practically listen to whatever you want & have not found any bands that they don't have, and I listen to some pretty obscure music. I really hope that Rhapsody keeps on this route, ie. browser based services instead of a downloaded program only for windows, b/c I think this service is great. The $10 monthly fee is completely worth it.
