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.

Well its.....different.....the touchscreen is really unique and of course all my GBA titles play on it. Not many games available as of yet for it but you can be sure it will grow. Metriod is pretty cool as is the Re-release of mario 64. I like it a lot and the batter lasts forever they did a good job on it. They could have though added some more buttons.
As for the PSp well the graphics are much better but does it matter on such a small screen? Also I heard thigns about the battery life beign great to batterlife being pretty short which concerns me. I am not a big fan for the PSP and the games I have seen to be coming out for it have all been lackluster. But I guess we shall see. If it means anything the DS is cheaper and will probably always be cheaper in typical nintendo fashion.
Got mine in the mail just a few days ago, was one of the lucky ones here in norway. Got it from japan, guess if I was confused the first time I turned it on. Everything was in japanese.
I love it, allways been a nintendo fan.
If you are thinking of buying the psp you should reconsider and read some reviews. Everything I read is bad, like 2h battery if you are lucky. Check it out yourself, playing dvds and mp3s would have been cool but when you can't even watch lotr whitout the battery going criticall I don't think it's worth it.
You guys seem to have read really one-sided news arcticles about the PSP. The fact is that the PSP has a lot more processor power and graphics power. Due to this reason the battery will last a shorter time.But the battery time of the PSP really depends on what your doing with it ,if your maxing out its
potenial the time is 2 hours but if your listening to music and playing less graphics intensive games it will be more like 5 hours. This handheld console battle is very much like the xbox and the PS2,the thing that kept the PS2 a best seller for along time is it games not its capabilities,those are just a added advantage. I think that sony understands this concept very well as it has already started to scoop up exclusive contracts with game companies, for example rockstar and gta for PSP. The one with the better games will win this battle. I just hope sony wins so I have the added benefit of better graphics,the ability to watch movies and listen to mp3s. But when it comes to it I will buy the one with better games.
a couple of my friends have DS's and i really wasnt impressed enough to buy one. the games are, like most nintendo games, childish and stupid. maybe if they get goldenye multiplayer on there, it would be a good reason for buying it, but i really dont any reason to. or ma ybe if the linux port is any good...
the psp seems cool, but i dont think it will sell because it costs too much and the ds is too popular.
