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.

I have been programming in M$ Windows for some time now and have some experience in bsd/nix writing console apps in c++.
I would like to get started with GUI programming in nix and want to choose between GTK and QT. So far what I know or believe as being advantages of the 2 platform are QT is solid C++ and GTK is solid LGPL( please donít flame me or others for this statement).
On occasion I write stuff that I canít give out the source for (not that it is commercial) but would like to release the binaries to others. Most of this stuff that I donít want source code released for would be written in c++ and I would probably use QT or GTK to put a GUI on it. If I were to use QT could I for instance release the GUI stuff as open source and keep the other application code as binaries or would this break the GPL. In my understanding this would be possible under GTK.
And just to make it more interesting I prefer C++ so is QT or GTK (Wrapper) better for c++ in terms of speed and OO structure.
