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.

yep, i think i haven't seen this thread before .. so here i started it
There must be some software that u guys absolutely love to use, and perhaps u guys can share the experience
just post your recommended software (in rpm, tgz or any format installable) name here and write a few lines of description about how great it is ! :P (it would be great if you don't post something lame like "wow, my program's called xinit and it worked great!" ... perhaps something that is not in a regular linux distribution install package would be great)
pico.....epic....lynx....xterm.....on and on and on...........
these programs become more and more interesting as you read the man pages.

Well, fancy that: I, too, am stuck on level 70. I admit I use the "chain reaction" feature, so I guess in a sense I got that far by some (authorized) cheating... But level 70 has got me licked, so far.
I find xmahjongg very relaxing. I also play pysol a lot.
For non-game favorites, openoffice.org has got to be right up there at the top--I use the word processor and the spreadsheet daily.
Jpilot allows me to use my Palm IIIx and keep all my personal records.
And xplns is a very nice planetarium program if you like to see what's happening in the heavens at a given moment. I keep it running in realtime mode all the time!
