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 thought that as part of the "Random app" feature I might as well include games. Those who feel that Linux lacks in games certainly need to pay more attention because some of these Linux games are far more addictive and playable than some commercial Windows games. Sure, they're not the flashy modern games with pumped up 3d photo-realistic graphics and advanced sound effect, but they're fun nevertheless and if anything even more addictive than your typical 3d FPS game. So this week, I'm featuring KGoldRunner as the random game. It's not a game I normally play in KDE (KSirtet and KBounce being the ones I normally play) but today I took a look at it and it's easily one of the more addictively playable games for the Linux desktop. A simple and playable pacman like game, it has more strategic elements than pacman and is certainly challenging enough to keep any gamer addicted as you navigate the level using ropes and ladders. The basic premise is the same as any other pacman game - collect all the points in the level without making contact with the baddies - but this one also features some more strategic elements and since there's only one exit point from the level, it's far more challenging. In fact, I've not yet completed the second level as I write this.
