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.

There are some good games for Linux, real problem is nobody maintains the packages for them. I downloaded a 600 meg Ubuntu 13 DEB package for Sauerbraten (Cube2) and it was the old version. I then had to go to a Russian site to get an RPM for F19 and it was compiled wrong. Almost a gig and a half of wasted bandwidth! Nobody wants to play Assult Cube (Cube1 engine) but that's all Red Hat put in their repo. It's like nobody feels like helping the "community" (to use word loosly) of little tyrants who are running these distro... myself included.
They have Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike Source for Linux but I would also like to see Counter-Strike Global Offensive. Plus what is preferably the best distro for gaming? I prefer Fedora due to the yum packing manager?
