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.

How much will Mandriva venture into developing markets like India, China, APAC and some African countries?Would it aim to capture the market right from the beginning or wait for another company to tap the market and then try to eat into their marketshare.(Like what most linux distros are doing in the developed economies)
Wit the advances in to the corporate world being made by Linux and Mandriva, would they ever consider following Red Hat and producing a corporate and community version - more than they do already? or will they remain as they are.
Does the merger mean that Apt4Rpm will overtake urpmi as the package manager of choice, or will urpmi be opened to other distros?
IMHO the weakest point of Mandriva is how it is treating its community. Or I should say how it is NOT treating its community. You seem to competely ignore them (no idea about the club though, I won't pay just to be a community member). Any plans about improving your relation with Mandriva fans?
Will there ever be a gamer's edition again? Linux distros seem to ignore this slice of the market.
To XavierP: The next package manager will be smartpm. AFAIK apt4rpm is unmaintained. Urpmi is already opened, everything that Mamdriva/Mandrake writes is GPLed.
