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.

Next Interview - Asa from Mozilla
Asa, the community quality advocate extraordinaire from Mozilla, has graciously agreed to an interview. I am going to take the best few questions from this thread and add them to the interview. What would you like to know?
What are the ins and outs with Firebird, Thunderbird, and the other projects that don't even seem to have names? I know part of this new scheme of implementation was to make development easier but doesn't he worry that splitting it up will actually make it even harder to coordinate and doesn't he worry about elements like IRC and HTML-editing falling through the cracks?
How does he feel about the Firebird database uproar and why does Mozilla have such bad luck with names? It took a long time to decide on this one, only to get a debate anyway.
How does he feel about IE no longer being stand-alone? About the success of Safari on the Mac? In other words, the competition as a whole. And does he think that Mozilla is being reconceived as an anti-Explorer more than its original Navigator+ concept? Or are those even fair characterizations? Is "competition" with Safari and Explorer even the right way to express it?
What does the Mozilla Foundation and the imminent death of Netscape as a division of AOL mean? Is that death "imminent"?
That's off the top of my head. I'll try again later. Maybe stuff about the XML nuts and bolts, and other platforms, but I'm not technical enough to ask those right.
-- Or are we asking questions about Asa the guy? Um. What exactly are his responsibilities and how did he get to that position?

Will they keep on differentiating between Konqueror and Mozilla (with whatever new name), do they have the manpower and resources to keep both projects running, is any merger possible and or to be desired? Or, more general, are there mergers with other free browsers in the planning stage?
1) Crystal ball question: Do the mozilla devlopers see more acceptance of the browser as a client interface to applications in the future? While loads of Open Source devolopers have been focusing on replacements for MS Exchange and other apps like CRM and project management there are already some great server-side tools (SquirrelMail, Horde/IMP, TUTOS) that can do this and use pretty much any browser to get it done. Also, is the resistance to this idea from end-users or developers?
