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.

The simple answer is that bash,perl and python are interpreted programming/scripting languages whereas samba and apache are two different types of server but the long answer is much more complex I suggest you google them.
You had missed out shell (sh) is one of popular linux programming/scripting language in linux
No, didn't miss it...the OP didn't mention it, nor did they mention any of the MANY popular programming/scripting languages. Also, sh is NOT just a scripting language...it is a SHELL, much like bash or ksh.

My current exercise is posted here where I am trying to chop up /var/log/secure files from
remote CentOS machines looking for conclusive data. Progress is slow but I am making progress
It's been a challenge because after 18 years in IT and being the "Hardcore Linux Guy" at c9, it surprises me that I don't have this skill.
"Bash, perl, samba, and apache" are words in a vocabulary I speak every day.
I love programming in general, always have.
dBase III+ from "back in the day" and shell scripting now.
My personal site is a shrine to "looking under the hood".
I recently purchased the 2 attached.JPGs. I am reading Programming Perl until Learning Perl arrives next week.
