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.

In Windows when you write an application with Visual Basic, it gives you a GUI, a place to design what it looks like, a place for code .... etc.I am very interested in learning to program in other languages(If you can even consider Visual Basic a language, lol)so I downloaded Python 2.3. All it looks like to me at the moment is a command line. Are there any basics to get started becaus I am totally used to VB still. Thanks.
what do you mean?
like are you just looking for something new to learn, or are you wanting to do something specific?
if your just asking this as a general question, then the answer is totally up to you...
If you want to do gui coding then QTDesigner and Glade are two toolkits that are right up your alley. QT is mainly for C++ although other people have created bindings for other languages. Glade is for GTK+ that supports C and C++ and there are bindings for others as well.
