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.

Speech recognition program like DragonNaturally Speaking Preferred.
I am a translator, and the biggest boost in personal productivity came when I bought DNS. Linux will not be my office system until there is a comparable speech recognition program. I'd certainly be willing to pay the market price.
Distribution: Gentoo, Slack, SuSE, Ubuntu... Flavor of the week
I'm too newb to use Wine at this point, and there's really nothing new to post here, so chalk up one more vote for Dreamweaver MX, Paint Shop Pro (which, call me crazy, but I like more than Photoshop), and boy, I'd never use Windows again if a) I could get Black and White working under Linux (or XP, or Win2k... has anyone gotten that to run on ANY OS?) or the Sims 2 when it comes out.
But the big one: DREAMWEAVER. Quanta is nice, yes. But it's just not Dreamweaver.
Edit: I bought Macromedia Studio MX with a student discount... would be willing to pay that $200 alone for Dreamweaver.

I'm wondering what efforts does it cost company's to port their games to another platform. Do they have to rewrite the code entirely or is it easyer than that.
And if anyone is ambitous: make a program that port window programs to linux programs. So I buy Photoshop and port it with that program (that I also bought, sounds pretty legal). :-D I know I'm dreaming if it was possible somebody would of thought about it before and be f*cking rich now :-D.
But anyway the base question: what efforts does it takes for company's to port their software.
Distribution: Fedora Core 1 & WinXP Pro & Gentoo 1.4 & Arch Linux
My only remaining use for Winblows is Activesync for my PocketPC. I doubt MS would allow it to be ported but we can dream.
note: I have looked at the linux alternative but its not quite ready for prime-time yet.
Originally posted by banderson I wish sprint would write a Linux version of their wireless card manager, so I could use my wireless internet card under Linux.
Damn. I'm pretty sure that the GPRS wireless cards are covered in the 2.4.20+ kernels because I just ordered a $550 card card from my cell provider based on a lot of Googling. If I read the docs correctly it's just a matter of treating the cards as modems with IP/name server info added by the user. Otherwise it's a short hop to eBay
