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.

Most assuredly "Quicken" followed by "Forte Agent" and "Directory Opus". One other program in addition to these "Linux stoppers", would be "DriveCrypt". Unless and until I can find suitable open source replacements for these programs, I'm stuck with Winders.
Distribution: Debian amd64 with 32bit libs and Debian 32 bit laptop
this thread and "Why Do You Use Linux or Why Did You Switch?" has to be the longest running post. First post was 10-19-13 by Jeremy. Lets hope the software venders sit up and take notice and follow Unreal Tournament's example
I realise trying to leave a message for someone who posted a few years back is pointless, but still:
Kazaa is notorious for having installed so many adware, spyware, and other malicious programs on people's PCs.
Is there a version of LimeWire for linux? Last I checked it's open source, so it shouldn't be too hard to get a linux port.
Stuff I'd like to see:
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, or San Andreas
- Adobe Flash. Or a similar app from the open source community
- Hmm, I don't think there's anything else. I'm not too demanding from my PC.
Yes, I know yahoo craps on the linux world it so freely steals from by rewriting protocols as often as some of them change their socks, it seems. As with Paltalk, it seems that a linux backend running system like them should be able to accomidate linux.
Speaking of IM tools, gaim is great for talking to MSN messenger clients, but it doesn't support the "remote assistance" rubbish XP has built in. It seems very VNC like, is there any way to get VNC(or any other desktop sahring tool) to talk to it? It totaly annoys me that I have to use win XP to help my mum with her emails (the absolute only reason I use it). I would install VNC, but as a non technical long time windows user, as soon as she sees an icon she dosen't recognise (even one that I piont out when I install it) the machine is at the store for a reinstall faster that you can say "spyware, what spyware?".
And please don't tell me it will work with WINE... WINE doesn't work on my AMD64-FC6(i386) system.
I have MEGA-GIGABYTES of disk space 1.5GB of RAM a stable environment, but there is a real hang in WINE... so... Porting such an app to Linux would make my research project a LOT easier than working out the research papers on my FC6 with 'TeX and using M$xp to view the textual content via disk switching.
my two cents.
