Once again the Free Software and Open Source Symposium will bring together a diverse group of developers, leaders, and thinkers in Open Source and Open Content. FSOSS 2008 will run October 23-24 at Seneca@York, Toronto. Early Bird discount are available until the end of the month -- next Tuesday -- but even the regular registration is a bargain :-) See the FSOSS website (http://fsoss.ca) for details.
These are my first two books: X Power Tools, a thorough guide to the X Window System (O'Reilly, ISBN 9780596101954) and Fedora Linux: A Complete Guide to Red Hat's Community Distro, a practical hands-on book on Fedora (O'Reilly, ISBN 9780596526825).
Fedora Linux is also available for online reading through Safari and in downloadable PDF format from oreilly.com
