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.

.... since i dont see anything around science or math, i would assume people would stop working for crappy pay, and start doing what they really want to do. Some would do art, others do science and math, and others make things (like new computers, or new programs, or a new spaceship to tour the universe ..). So yes humans would go on (i just hate the word "mankind" ... it doesnt seem to have any logic, either it assumes men are nice (*cough*), or that women just dont matter .... either way, i hate that word!!). Just because people dont have to starve to death, or work deadend jobs, it doesnt mean everyone goes away and doesnt come back, it just means people can stop doing what they hate, and stop worrying about stupid things like living, and start having fun, and start improving things.
Fair_is_fair - what was the name of the story you read and where can I read it?
You can't really give someone everything. You can't make someone happy. You can't make someone a great writer. You can't make anyone anything without them wanting it too. We each have have our own soul. You can provide building blocks, but only the individual can make it work. Of course if you gave someone everything they asked, they would never have time to figure out what they really wanted. They'd waste hour after hour doing silly things like I'm doing right now participating in forum posts.
What if I don't like music, painting, and most forms of art? Sound pretty miserable to me. It takes all types to make the world go round. Maybe I'm happy doing things that most people find unpleasant, find joy in overcoming difficulty, maybe I just don't fit in your idea of a perfect world.
