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.

Recently I moved from Ubuntu 11.11 AMD_64 to Fedora 17 86_64, everything works fine except one little thing that is playing video's.
I have the latest 64-bits kernel (3.4.2-4.fc17.x86_64), Nvidia 259,59 drivers installed from RPMfusion and Mplayer from the same repo. The problem is that the video's I play sometimes frees for a fraction of a second, something I never experienced with Ubuntu 11.10 (running the same software and hardware).
The computer hardware is a Asus P5K mainboard with an Intel Q6600 (Duo 2 Quad) processor, 4GB memory and a Nvidia GTS450 with 2GB memory.
Xine is not really on my list of favorite programs, also it uses the same Codecs as Mplayer (most at least) so I did not try that, but I tried VLC which seems to have the same problem.
Most of the movies I play are series I download, and some movies in DivX/Xvid or X264, it's not only related to HD movies...
Movie formats are mostly AVI and MPG. Overall the system performance is pretty good and I have nothing to complain except for that little thing that the video playback freezes one frame for a fraction of a second, some people will maybe not even notice...
