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.

Anyone know of a decent web dev enviroment for linux. I have been using Dreamweaver UltraDev for a while and have grown to like it a lot. Is there something similar for linux? (doesn't have to be quite as robust) Thanks!
Originally posted by rshaw vi/emacs, they both blow. let's all take 6 months off and learn all the obscure keystroke combinations, just to replicate what can be done in any modern editor with the mouse,tab, and arrow keys.
ok, graybeards, i've got my asbestos shorts on, let er' rip.
Indeed. In emacs I can hold down Control and tap six keys that are virtually next to each other. Or in JED I can take my hands off the keyboard, pick up the mouse click in six different places and achieve the same thing in five times the time.
For quick editing etc, vi / vim (usually vi because I can't be bothered getting to the mouse to click gkrellm launch). Really, when you get to understand some basic things, and you are interested in actually getting something done as opposed to bumbling around, you can't beat vi (I don't use emacs, perhaps it's ok as well, I did download it (windows) but couldnt' be bothered trying to learn it, so just go for Gvim.
Anyhow, if I'm doing something bigger, I'll again use CodeGuide , it'll edit all sort of files (it's priority is java) but has syntax highlighting for the nicer languages (god, if you call C / C++ nice) as well as html, xml, JSP, servlets blah blah. Anyway, whatever you feel is good will be best.
