This interactive course will certainly introduce Red Hat Linux to a broader audience because it’s definitely fun to learn this way. What’s very handy is that the end of each lecture you’ll be able to test your knowledge with self-assessment questions. Read more at Help Net Security.
Review – Training Course for Red Hat Linux

Red Hat books seem to abound. Can anyone recommend a good Debian book? Mostly I would like an in-depth coverage of APT. Something advanced, but not just reference.
DSL should be installed at my house this week, so I’m probably going to jump to unstable.
It’s not a printed bound manual, but it may help none the less.
Actually when I first bought debian it included a dead tree version of O’Reilly’s Debian book. I found it fantastic.
The problem with Linux books in general is that by the time they’re out and on the shelves they’re already outdated. Take this one for example. Lilo? Nothing but a bad memory these days. Linuxconf? Deprecated ages ago (and good riddance). Swat still being used? Maybe on Slackware… the list goes on and on.
Maybe downloadable and updatable books on the net could be an answer? Something like O’reilly’s Safari, only constantly being updated and revisited.
I always liked reading the Red Hat Bible books since they were so easy to understand. It would certainly be nice if they’d write one for Debian 3.0 though..
Glad to see that Red Hat did a book on Debian, but BlackCat is right, it looks pretty outdated (and is out of print).
Also interesting that Linuxconf is on its way out. When I was running LinuxPPC (esentially Red Hat) Linuxconf was my biggest struggle.

Because Windows needs Linux; Microsoft has never been a great innovator – that mantle falls better on Apple`s shoulders. Microsoft has always been very strong in the face of competition. Left to their own devices, they`d stagnate.
Since Apple wasn`t in the Wintel space, and significantly more expensive, they haven`t been directly in Microsoft`s face for years.
So, you may think Linux sucks but, thanks to it, Windows sucks a lot less thanks it used to.
Oh, by the way, this site is called OS News; it`s for people who want to learn more about alternative OSes. If you`re happy running Windows, why do you need to visit any site other than M$?
I wouldn’t waste my time giving you a reason to use Linux. Use whatever you like. However, I noticed that you asked to be left alone and that no one bother you. If that’s the way you feel why are you reading these kinds of articles?

I haven’t found any lists in favor of Internet Explorer but feel free to point them out if you know some.
