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.

Vixta is a new Linux distribution, first released only last month, based on the not-yet-released Fedora 8. Its main objective is to emulate the visual aspects of Microsoft Vista. Version 095 contains the newest, and sometimes unstable, versions of software. The project's goals include being free in every sense, requiring absolutely no configuration, and being user-friendly, eye-catching, and familiar. Too bad the goals don't include feature-complete and stable.
Sounds like a bad product. Problems with resolution, locked gadgets on the screen, disappearing panels, lack of media support (no, not codecs, but MEDIA PLAYERS). It looks like they took all there is unstable in Fedora, downloaded a theme from kde-org, compiled a custom kernel with less modules and packed it full of glitches. Not even the installer was modified. I could have done that.
And don't even let me get started on the horrible name. Haven't we all learned a lesson with "Lindows", for crying out loud. Come on people, let's be original. Let's give a personality to Linux instead of copying (badly) what has already been created. By the looks of it, this project will drive every Vista user back to Vista, for obvious reasons, since it looks broken, feels broken and the name sounds goofy...
Yeah, they did, but failed. By the looks of it, it sounds worse than Windows ME (and that is a hard thing to beat). It sure will help people to thank Microsoft and go back to Vista once they've tried this "Operating System"
