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.

Although I think Opera, Konqueror and even Safari are far better browsers than Firefox, I use only Firefox. I just depend far too much on its addons for everything: From checking my e-mails to debugging websites. I would not use Firefox without any addons though
No, I need to see how my website looks on open standards compliant browsers ... only.
You have to understand that most people still use Internet Explorer. Linux users are 10 times smaller in number than Windows users, and saying that you don't have to use IE at all is just like the people that leave a "This site is only available for Firefox, download it now. IE sucks". If I found those people I would kill them. If they are to dumb to make a web site work for ie, that doesn't necessarily make IE bad. Testing on IE is good, because I want my friends to join my sites too. Friends who have Maxthon installed, not necessarily explorer.
"This site is only available for Firefox, download it now. IE sucks". If I found those people I would kill them.
If I remember correctly, if you go here with IE, they will advise you to install Firefox. Again, they are not really saying it is a Firefox only browser, just that you should not use IE . But don't be pissed at them. Wesnoth is one of my favorite open source games
Now, what I find funny, is the fact that the google search box on Wine's Appdb is messed up for me, with Ubuntu and Firefox, but looks fine in Windows with IE
