Lightbulb What are the best online Linux resources?


Perhaps some of you would be willing to share your favorite Linux links?
One of mine is this free online book about Linux:
http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz

(it requires work on the readers part and gets harder but is turning into a great introduction to Linux for me)

I would add The Linux Documentation Project to the list.

Not to forget this one http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/

For me the Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is often very helpful http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/

I'll admit I was a commandlinefu.com addict for a few years.

I still have google bookmarks from over a decade ago.

I hope Habitual doesn't mind if I post an active link. From the website: "there is undoubtedly a *nix bias to most commands" As I am developing my own Linux-fu a website of command line gems is perfect: http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/browse

Docs from Red Hat site(for red hat users), youtube videos, some blogs which you can find in google, I do not have any specific favorite. But linuxquestions.org is very helpful.
