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.

Just take a load of this :
"Corel is HAPPY TO be able to OFFER this award-winning photo-editing and painting software to the Linux community."
(I mainly like the words "HAPPY TO OFFER") Download page here
membrax, did you happen to notice that that page hasn't even been touched for 18 months? no wonder they say you can manage with a system that shitty.
If Corel's porting / wine skills are anything like their distribution writing skills, i'm with mc9.... wine has come a fair way in that time, but i *still* wouldn't touch it, whatever they've hacked into that must be a scary experience
Q. Why is Corel using Wine to port WordPerfect® Office 2000 and Corel graphics applications to Linux?
A. Wine allows us to quickly migrate our Windows applications to Linux. Porting our applications using a native Linux windowing toolkit such as Qt or GTK+ would be a huge undertaking requiring many years of development. Wine has allowed us to move our major applications to Linux in a matter of months. At the same time, it provides good performance and integration with other Linux applications.
This script will remove all Corel Graphics 9 packages from this system.
