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 am migrating from XP this week. First time here.
I would like to see Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks, Photoshop and Illustrator, like so many others.
More importantly, given that I am an architecture student and work for a a design firm, I cannot live without Autodesk products (AutoCAD, Autodesk Viz and Autodesk Revit). Neither can most people in architecture and related professions. For this reason, I'll have to keep XP on my desktop for a long time still, since it seems that there are very few others around who need these programs ported to Linux.
My only real reason to still boot to Windows: Photoshop. The Gimp is a terrific piece of software considering it's free, but it is not a complete Photoshop replacement. I would pay the usual exorbitiant price for a copy of PS if it ran natively in Linux. I have seen screenshots of people using PS7 in Linux under CodeWeavers Crossover Office, and am considering purchasing it, but a version specifically for Linux would definitely spark my interest
I also LOVE MusicMatch Jukebox in Windows. I have thousands of mp3's on my hard drive, and MMJB's library beats all hands down. I realize the mmjb crew tried a Linux version, but aborted it because not enough interest. XMMS is ok, but it lacks the full feature goodies of mmjb. Trying to cue up a good playlist with XMMS when you have 10gb's of mp3's is a real pain in the ass. I might even try running it under Wine (which I really don't care for) just so I can have it in my day to day OS.
wow, how nice it would be to be running linux on your machine this morning. still i cannot complain about what 9.1 has done for my little dell laptop this weekend. holy toledo, i thought 9.0 was nice, holy krist, it doesn't compare with 9.1, if 9.2 is a leap over 9.0 the same way i can only imagine.
however, i can wait as i know 9.2 will need at least six months b 4 it stablizes....
Timeslips would be nice...as well as Quicken and the latest WordPerfect suite. (I think Corel is actually working on that one though.) TurboTax would also be very nice too! Then again, since I'm greener than green when it comes to Linux, it wouldn't surprise me if they already do.
Yes, I too would like someone to ask Bill Gates to do a MSN for Linux.

Photoshop & CorelDraw! all around best for creativity. Open Office Draw isn't bad, but needs a few of the more polished features of CorelDraw. Scribus is nice, but a bit "clunky". After a bit more refinement, should give QuarkXpress some serious competition!
Graphics are fun....it's some of the people that you deal with that ruin your day!
Here are some that I'm sure would find plenty of customers for Linux..
Cool Edit Pro Audio Recording
Second Copy File back ups
Real Producer Plus creating Real files
Sure Thing CD Cover creator
ConquerCam Web Cam security
Homewatcher Web Cam security
PhotoImpact graphics - web
Drive Image - Drive copy and back up
