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 switched to Ubuntu a couple weeks ago, and I like it very much. The only problem I've got is I can't subscribe to podcasts as I used to with iTunes. Is there a podcast client like iTunes for Windows? Thank you in advance.
I read through the thread, but I think I didn't specify what exactly I'm looking for. In fact I tried the gpodder thing (or a name similar), but it didn't satisfy my needs, because its podcasts choices are limited, and I can't always give the precise RSS url for the podcasts that I want to subscribe to.
With Ubuntu's Rhythmbox, I could add the RSS url (if I do have it) and download the recent podcasts, but it hasn't the "show all available podcasts" option as in iTunes for Windows. And some iTunes recognizable podcasts links (like "itms://....) are not recognized in Rhythmbox as podcasts, for example, I tried the "Insight for Living" (by Chuck Swindoll) podcasts in iTunes with Rhythmbox, it takes it as a radio station instead. Besides, when I had gpodder installed (yes, I've uninstalled it), I couldn't choose it from the default program dialogue box, I have to admit, I did feel like an idiot, because I don't know at all where the programs are installed, the truth is, I'm still new to Linux system.
What I look for is a podcasts client that allows me to directly subscribe to iTunes podcasts (still better if it recognizes iTunes U) instead of limiting the choices in its own podcasts pool or demanding me to provide the exact RSS link for new seeds.
How I wish iTunes could some day provide a Linux version!
