  As for online resources.. I've found the The Linux Gazzette
 (http://www.linuxgazzette.com/) a very good read, I usually find at

  I'm afraid I can't recommend any general Linux books, as most of them
 are either very specific, or like the one you already have very general.

  If there's a particular area you're interested in you might find the
 Linux Cookbook (http://www.dsl.org/cookbook/) handy - it contains a list
 of applications, and tips on doing different things, organized by task.
