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.

Did anybody notice that Gmail doesn't offer you an option to delete messages except those in the spam folder?
I am not very confident about google now. I wonder whether there is some motive behind creating "archives" of all users' e-mails. Surely I should have the option to delete messages permanently from their servers if I wish to?
Am I missing any option? If so please tell me.
EDIT: hehehe... Just noticed the "trash" option. Must be bleary eyed now. It's nearly 10 PM and bedtime.

Yes they do, it's under a drop down menu at the top called "more actions" once you delete them there they go to the trash. You can permanently delete them whenever you want from there. Or that folder gets purged every 30 days.

I guess space is not an issue any more, 2gigs is very little anyways. I mean its a lot of email, but we are people that don't delete emails or anything anymore. We don't care. Many people just go get another HD when one gets filled up, and so with the email, by the time you fill 2gigs of space, they will give you another 2gigs to fill..
I don't think there is anything fishy.. and I don't mind them uping the space.. and I don't think they will ever stop.
