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.

I would like to see a Madtracker port to linux. There are trackers already for linux but none of them can play .mt2 files. And i have made a couple of songs in .mt2 so i would really like to play them Plus Madtracker is the best tracker available.
Heard that they were making a port for linux but I havn't heard anything about it in a looong time.
Gnucash is a great piece of software but a bit over the top if you only want a budget and cashbook setup. I found a simple home accounts system a few years back at our local supermarket called Money Matters by Global Software Publishing Ltd which suited me very well -it was quick to enter and there was a monthly and annual budget comparison of the cash book classifications, together with forward posting of payments that could be excluded at the click of a mouse. There is a gap in Linux software when it comes to personal accounting, although I have found one or two programs written in India on a Google search that come very close to MM. A Linux accounts program would be good! I could use a spreadsheet I suppose!
I agree --- I would like to be able to get rid of windows on my laptop and use linux and have the ability to use my motorola phones v300 v600 as modem and dialer natively and possibly use it in asterisk to use the phone as a fxo modem.
If IBM wants companies to seriously consider moving to Linux, and Lotus Notes is about the only non-Exchange alternative, and Lotus Domino already runs on all kinds of flavors of Linux, where is my Lotus Notes Client?
Disclaimer - I happen to work for IBM, but still...
PhotoRescue - a digital image recovery tool for PC. I have a corrupt CD-R that has hundreds of MBs of photos I burned using my Windows 2000 Pro machine before I switched to Linux. I have been searching for quite some time for a comparable Linux app, without luck. No Windows photo recovery app I tried works under Wine.
There are several other Win photo recovery tools, but let's start with PhotoRescue.
I like that question it's prob cause theres so many projects for linux that it would be pointless to even try sense so many come and go. Mabe a list of really good programs that are included in all the main distros and all that get downloaded the most (10000 or more) or something like that. Then a separate list of already ported programs. I dont thank we need a list of WinBlozz programs all you have to do is surf the internet for awhile and you'll find them every where, I dont thank any one cares enough either way, so even thanking of trying to do this would be extraneous and not worth anyones time. By the time it was finshed it would be so out of date no one would want to even pee on it let alone read it

I burn pictures on a windows machine all the time and put them on my linux bo.x I dont understand the problem?
Neither do I. The problem is that I have JPGs on a CD that were burned in Windows and now neither Windows nor Linux can read them; they're somehow corrupt. I see plenty of Windows apps to recover corrupt photos, but none for Linux, with the exception of a couple that I tried and didn't work (Recovery Manager and Data Rescue). There's a separate thread I posted for that particular issue (Data & Photo Recovery for Linux).
