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, I can't actually figure this one out. My desktop will forever stay Windoze, I use it for hardcore gaming and my CAD software (Solid Edge, Solid Works, Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD). My laptop however I use Ubuntu 7.10, but have been using Windows a lot lately. I want to use Linux all the time, but something in the back of my mind keeps me gravitating towards windows.
But in a general sense, Open Office, Firefox, Thunderbird, VLC media player, and Banshee music library cover all of my needs.
Distribution: OpenSUSE11.1 and Windows XP on desktop, OpenSuse 11.2 on Eee PC
What a great thred.
i just want to say that I have been subscribed to this thread since day 1. I don't think whoever started it had any idea what a monster it would become. I love it!
I bade farewll to M$ OS in August 2006 and now use Kubuntu Hardy and OpenSuse 11.0 on 2 hard drives on my desktop, and the defaoult Xandros on my EeePC.
Linux just works.

Reason: Oops. Thread typo!
BTW Oracle 11g1 Enterprise works far better on F9 than Windows XP Prof SP3.
Firefox 3.0.5 doesn't print the inner content of the first page so it is back to XP Prof IE7 for printing.
Try a file find with dolphin under F9.
I still love Linux...yes I know Fedora is super beta!
I think you're better off telling this to the Fedora developers more directly.
As far as K3B.. what problems? By the by, K3B is just a front-end to common tools.
And I don't see your Firefox problem either, is this one specific site you visit or?..
Perhaps it could be fixed with more specific attention.
But perhaps you've just caught a touch of 'let's change this and that because it's our distro, we can be different like that.' syndrome.
Like how you can find Apache's htdocs in /var/www/html in Mandriva but not in Debian. (Both great distributions by the way, don't get me wrong) Distribution makers should stop moving crap around and stick to one standard because it's getting to a point where it has become too much work to keep figuring out out again when using distro X or Y or Z and why F is broken in G but not in L.. I may like distro X, but a customer of mine may prefer or be stuck with distro Z, and it's a pain to have to document and work around the differences just to get on with your work.
Windows? you should keep those closed, it's bloody winter! :P
built my system mainly for gaming, and that's what I use Vista for.
As I couldn't be bothered to reboot machine every now and then (I just hate it. Hence my machines are never off either) when I want to do other things, Vista stayed and instead came a second machine, put Debian on, and done.
