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, he might be right. (gasp!)
There are actually cheaper mp3 players of similar quality and WAY cheaper price out there. The thing that is keeping the Ipod in the lead is its cult fashion status. As seen by the sudden trend for white headfones.
Then again, with all thier working together (mac office) they are fighting for the popular vote. With the Mac Mini, Apple knocked out Microsoft's "cheaper hardware" advantage and now they are fighting for the *hem* "Hearts and Minds" of the general user.
So, does anyone believe this, or should we file this away with other classic Gates nonsense like "640k Should Be Enough for Anybody.''?
With OS X Tiger looking like a real Longhorn killer, I can't help but suspect that this is just anti-Apple FUD.
I dont understand how its a killer when Longhorn hasnt even been released yet? Anyway I could care less what Gates thinks. He could say I dont believe dialup will be the connection of the future and be right or he could say 40gb is all anyone would ever need and be wrong...
Distribution: Ubuntu, Debian, Various using VMWare
He does have a point about mobiles though. Why carry both a mobile and an ipod if the mobile could have similar functionallity?
However, I wouldn't want to run "Windows Mobile" or whatever he calls it. Also, a current mobile would possibly be able to accomodate a small flash based mp3 player (Say 256Mb of songs). I doubt they would be putting hard drives in mobile phones just yet, due the the size and weight issues, and people have a tendancy to drop mobiles.
