If one is a system admin, or an amateur, looking to explore the world of computers, then the best choice would be this web cast, given by Carla Schroder, columnist, blogger, and author of the Linux Cookbook and Linux Networking Cookbook. She is a fantastic writer, and even the non technical person can know what she is trying to tell. She writes in such a clear manner that you don't have to go for any other reference. When she presents a webcast or writes a book, she sticks on to main thread, and at the same time, she point towards other chapters as and when needed. She covers major technical aspects like,how to run graphical applications, the favorite desktop, remote helpdesk, and even control a Windows machine from Linux. One can learn how to use open source software to create solutions, how to use SSH, which is secure shell, for network management, etc from her webcasts.
