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.

There is no universal interoperability between ID3v2 rating tags and software. When rating a song in iTunes for example, the rating is not embedded as a tag in the music file but is stored instead in a specific iTunes folder. Some other media players do embed rating tags in music files but each software creates its own tag frame. As a result, a song which is rated on a media player (usually from 1 to 5) won't display the rating when played on another software or mobile device.
The frame is called POPM and Windows, WMP, and Winamp (among many other smaller apps, like Foobar, etc) all use roughly the same ranges of 0-255 to create the display of 0-5 stars for display, and they do store this info in the files tag, if so desired.
Vorbis comments (used by ogg vorbis and flac) doesnt specify there should be a 'ratings' field. If its included in the comments, it should work with some players though. Never tested it myself, I dont use ratings at all.
Does anybody know if there is a better tool that does the above that has come out in the last few months maybe?
Going to leave this open (unsolved) for now just in case something better comes along and somebody wants to comment.
