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've used sodipodi. It's good and getting better, but it's not quite as mature as the tools that are standard in the graphics industry. The same goes for OpenOffice.org Draw: it's good, but it's not quite good enough for Linux to stand it's ground against MacOS in the graphics industry.
i would like to see many games ported to linux so that i do not have to use an emulator and hope that the games are supported through that. also, dreamweaver would be great to see ported because of the flash editing parts of it. kazaa or some other sharing software would be useful too... because as far as i know, there is no cross-platform file sharing software and that makes it difficult for *nix and 'doze users to share files.

I spent several days just recently to set up a SOHO linux server with mail server. All it had to do was to dial up an ISP, check POP3 with Alisases and distribute to local accounts. Before, i used a tiny program called FTGate which toke me just about 10 minutes to set up.
