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.

Yes, will something tells me that $MS drop the Longhorn name because they can't deliver it.
Will it be a glorified XP, Linux is moving so fast that $MS has got to get something out there to
buffalo the public, just like $MS style.
Windows codename Longhorn / real name Vista is due out end of 2006. I actually have several builds of it, nothing really exciting. Most of the features Microsoft planned on implimenting won't even be in the final product. By that time it's rumoured Apple's next release should be due which will see them migrating fully to x86. But don't fear, KDE 3.5 is in development and next year (also rumoured) we'll see KDE 4.0 which should be breathtaking.
I think it would be more apt to call it Windows XP Service Pack 3.
Nearly all the new and 'interesting' features had been cancelled.
I don't know what they've been doing with themselves but they will have had 5 years to get this new verison ready, WinFS is only a database indexing all the files on the hdd, the actual filesystem is still to be NTFS - how can they not manage to implement that in 5 years?
I can see blackcomb being as big a dissappointment again. It is already rumoured to have changed from having server and home/pro or client versions to just server versions.
