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.

What games would you like to see ported to Linux?
This thread is for letting vendors know that there is interest in porting one of their games to Linux. Let us know what games you would like to see ported and why. Details such as how much you would be willing to pay may be helpful as well. If there is enough interest for certain games I will even contact the vendor myself.
WARCRAFT III, of course!!! one of the best games EVER!!!
warcraft II was the best of its times (i used to spend hours playing it...7 years ago... ), but warcraft III is really revolutionary - it's the best simbiose of RTS and RPG...
While Transgaming's WineX has a "4" rating for the entire Baldur's Gate series, I'd love native versions of these amazing games. I'm usually unwilling to pay for a game, but I'd definitely shell out some money for these ones.
id like to see any game from Atari ported and any game from Valve. Activistion also. Because theres only one thing better than using a stable operating system, its using a stable operating system and game at the same time.
I'm wondering what efforts does it cost company's to port their games to another platform. Do they have to rewrite the code entirely or is it easyer than that.
And if anyone is ambitous: make a program that port window programs to linux programs. So I buy Half-Life 2 (in the future) and port it with that program. :-D I know I'm dreaming if it was possible somebody would of thought about it before and be rich now :-D.
But anyway the base question: what efforts does it takes for company's to port their software.
