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.

They simply annoucned the offical name of their new OS I don't see whats the big deal? Just like Whistler became XP etc....it was not cancelled just a name change signaling a shift into the BETA phase.
Also MS when XP came out said they would not release a new OS until 2006 and they didn't. Up until that pointhtey released one every 2-3 years. So this was a change in direction. So far I hate the look of the interface.
As for the virtual desktops whats the difference between th epowertoy one and the kde one? They seem pretty identical to me. The one thign I like is the preview one in the windows. But then KDE has that nifty shadows of the windows in theirs.

You should go to the MS site for that.
Actually I could do that for you but my hourly rates are quite high.
As far as I've read, I don't think that even the Microsoft people is certain about which new features will be released for summer 2006, they are so behind schedule that It seems that most of the new features (WinFS, Avalon) are going to be delayed.
What really troubles me is the huge budget and time that is taking to release Windows Vista, isn't Windows a "good" example of the development of proprietary software?, if this is true no wonder why free software will rule this business in few years...
i doubt the released product will be named vista.. M$ has a 3 name scheme, internal, initial public.. and public. It has always been that way. Vista will be dropped for something else before it hits the shelves.
