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.

Hello irish rebel, you may or may not find this interresting, but I have a number of games available, links, comments and support at my webby. I also have been Windows Free for about 3 to 4 years now including my kids and one chalenge for me was getting games working for them, although they are not as old as 11 yet.
Check it out and see if there is anything in there that you like or that can help.
Distribution: K/Ubuntu 10.04/12.04, Scientific Linux 6.3, Android-x86, Maemo
Savage plays in both Lin and Win,... and there is no fee, beyond the puchase of the game. I haven't played online yet, as I just got it the other day (used,... for $12 US).
Cedega will apparently run WarCraft III and StarCraft very well. I have only played a little StarCraft.
Count on some other games in the strategy arena coming out soon. Linux gaming has been dominated by Shooters for the most part. The real place where we need (retail) games is in simulations and sports.
