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.

Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) released
The Ubuntu team is very pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 13.10
for Desktop, Server, Cloud, Phone, and Core products.
Codenamed "Saucy Salamander", 13.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition
of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a
high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at
work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.
Ubuntu 13.10 introduces the first release of Ubuntu for phones and Ubuntu
Core for the new 64-bit ARM systems (the "arm64" architecture, also known
as AArch64 or ARMv8), and improved AppArmor confinement. In addition to
these flagship features there are also major updates throughout.
Ubuntu Server 13.10 includes the Havana release of OpenStack, alongside
deployment and management tools that save devops teams time when
deploying distributed applications - whether on private clouds, public
clouds, x86 or ARM servers, or on developer laptops. Several key server
technologies, from MAAS to Ceph, have been updated to new upstream
versions with a variety of new features.
Maintenance updates will be provided for Ubuntu 13.10 for 9 months,
through July 2014.
Reviews below. One review referred to this release as "boring". To me, boring is good. Canonical has been way too aggressive with pushing upgrades that seem to have stability/quality control issues. Delaying MIR was probably a good thing.
