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.

- Bioshock 1 and 2 (my favourite games. the story, atmosphere and voice acting are superb)
- Team fortress 2 (if you are into fun/strategic online shooters),
- Amnesia: The Dark Descent (scary as hell )
- Civilization 5 (if you like turn-based strategy).
EDIT: unfortunately only Amnesia has a Linux version, the rest run on Windows (Bioshock also runs on consoles I think).
Thief series; although maybe the graphics quality is not the best (the first of the trilogy is from 1998, but you could get the last one, Thief: Deadly Shadows, which is better graphically). Probably the best game I've ever played.
Also, Assassin's Creed (good gameplay, and graphically astounding).
+1 for Civilization 5, and and it works fine with wine.
Dragon Age: Origins is also very good, and I also like some of the older games, like Jagged Alliance 2 or Neverwinter Nights.
Hmm, lets think about some more. I find Assassin's Creed II funny, Mafia 2.
Assassins Creed 1 2 and 3.... But mainly for the story. Gameplay is particularly repetitive in 1. And they all sort of follow the same model. This game is not for everybody. They all follow the same story and they all can stand on their own but 2 and 3 follow closer together in the time line.
Ratchet and Clank - any of them. Their all the same game aside from story which is often amusing. Plus it's fun to level up the weapons. WAY TOO EASY. Not challenging at all. But I like it.
Zelda Twilight Princess - Game Cube Version. Best of the 3D Zelda, great fun, but still suffers from the 'empty world' feeling where some areas are so large it make it feel wrong. It's mainly about the dungeons and puzzles.
Mirrors Edge - free running on buildings with decent story. Great for $20 terrible for $60.
NFS Carbon, terrible story, great gameplay and fun to decorate cars.
Never buy anything with "Ninja" in it. They are all the same game play and they always suck terribly.
I honestly don't buy many games for money reasons. But those are some of my selections for newer games.
Standard Anglo-American deck of 52 (+2 Jokers) playing cards. Tons of fun, universal appeal, endless opportunities and not reliant on electricity.
what about the chessboard, 16 white pieces and 16 black pieces... ?!
what do you say...?!
I say white has development, this is Black handicap... but it is impossible for white to exploit development advantage without compromising centre's strength... this is Black's bait " Come and get me if you can... "
