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.

Linux has no option as far as online video is concerned. In the UK, for example, you either buy an OS or you don't get paid for video. The only option for paid video on Linux in the UK is the legally-dubious DVD.
I realise many people don't care about watching films on Linux but for anyone that does the death of Flash is a bad thing pragmatically, regardless of what a hateful processor hog it is.
There's no more flash for anything. It's pretty well winding down to windows only. I mean the biggest platforms in no particular order are windows pc's, macs, iphones, android devices, and linux desktops. There was never flash on the iphone, it's being dropped for android, it goes away from linux and it's pretty well back to windows pc's and macs again, this time it says more about the state of flash than it does about the state of the other platforms I think.
Distribution: Debian for server, CrunchBang for everything that's not a server
This is probably a stupid question, but will Flash be able to run on browsers which are based on the Chromium framework? I'm using SRWare Iron, and I can't say I'm too thrilled by the concept of having to move to Google Chrome in order to be able to view YouTube videos.
