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.

Red Hatís Bugzilla Passes 1,000,000 Milestone
Bug 1,000,000 was filed today by Anton Arapov in Red Hatís Bugzilla. The bug, an improvement request for the automatic bug detection and reporting tool (abrt), is a nice milestone just a few weeks ahead of the 15th anniversary of Bugzillaís first release.
The Bug #1 in Red Hatís Bugzilla is not publicly visible, but Bug #2 was filed against the Red Hat Secure Web Server in November 1998. Even then, Red Hat was quick to jump on new and interesting open source technologies: the first Bugzilla release was in August 1998, just a few months before Red Hat started using the system.
Technically, it may not actually be the 1,000,000th bug, and it might be more accurate to say ďissueĒ rather than bug. (Thereís apparently been a few issues skipping numbers at some point in the Bugzilla history.) Red Hatís Bugzilla is used to track bugs, feature requests, improvements, and so forth for Red Hatís products as well as many projects Ė such as Fedora, GlusterFS, oVirt, and many others. Still, itís a good time to take a moment and marvel at just how many issues have been tracked and resolved in Red Hatís little corner of the open source world.
