One of the most difficult tasks in writing for the new Linux user is trying to figure out how much to place on their plate. Linux from the command-line offers so much it is often presented in a way that overwhelms the user and they choke. This book does an excellent job at presenting the right amount of content without drowning the reader. This is the best introduction to the command-line I have read. The limitations of the book are more about limited space than about the author, presentation or content.

The universe that contains GNU/Linux and Free Software rarely slows down for simple things such as holidays. This week proved to be no exception. Hewlett-Packard Corporation, the venerable U.S. corporation founded in 1939 by titans David Packard and William Hewlett, made history of sorts by releasing WebOS under an open source license. Why is this release so historic? Because it is one of the strongest ever votes of confidence for the open source concept. HP is a behemoth of a company with over 300,000 employees as of 2010. The Federal Communications Commission also gave its strong support of open source when it sponsored an open source app challenge. Lastly, Red Hat Corporation continued its rapid ascent by reporting another quarter of outstanding profits. Here are the three fabulously fascinating stories for this week’s The Linux Week in Review:
WebOS is Released to the Wild
The FCC Supports Open Source
Red Hat Posts Another Record Quarter: Proof Hat There is Money in Linux

I have never undertaken a more challenging or more rewarding computer programming project. As I spent hour after hour poring over the code, I began to realize why everyone is making such a fuss about HTML 5.

The game, called Pissed Off Penguins, looks similar to the popular “Angry Birds” game most of you have likely heard about. I wanted to outline this open-source project and expose some of the unique techniques Kris is using to both fund this project and create the game itself.

It's important to backup your system no matter what operating system you're using. In this quick tutorial I will show you how to backup and restore your Ubuntu desktop and data. The Ubuntu 11.10 release came with Déjà Dup, a simple Duplicity based backup tool installed by default.
