Lightbulb The best, free online recourses to learn Linux in more depth

Hi there! I've decided to learn Linux OS, mainly to administrate and to program in C. I've found gcc a great alternative to the highly priced borland/microsoft products. First thing which I did, I bought a Linux Bible 2009 edition. Unfortunately, I've found it absolutely useless. It doesn't explain about file structures, how the system works, etc. Everything is written for a complete dummie. In addition, author assumes that somebody had already installed a system for you. Nevertheless, I've managed to install Ubuntu simply by following instructions on the screen. Now I'm struggling to sell that "Bible" and I don't really want to spend more money on books. There is all sorts of help available online, but it is not structured in a way I'd like it to be (or maybe I didn't find it yet). However, there is one online book which I particularly liked, but it is a bit outdated:
[ ].

I would appreciate if somebody would share something similar, up to date!

Before posting this thread I've done my little research. For somebody who is looking for some help in a particular aspect of using OS, here are some links which I've found useful.

[The Linux Documentation Project]

[Bash reference guide]
[seems like good info, but not finished yet]

Thank you!
