I was engaged as co-author for a book published in French, about a "Linux distribution easy to use". The book was published in January 2006. The writing had started late 2004, we have been 3 authors and I worked several hours daily during half a year on it. (And covered 3 versions of the distribution from 2004 to the end of 2005). It has been a hard and long work, which didn't even bring a decent salary... but I had the opportunity by this experience, to learn faster and more than I would have expected when I was just started.
With this souvenir in mind, and with all the projects I am working on now, I don't think I have an interest in writing a tutorial for command lines when so many good ones already exist on the web. I would rather suggest you open a sticky thread with the goal of having each one bring a link to his favorite tutorials.
NFS: I don't have the use for it. When I need to share folders I use either sshfs in console or gigolo as a gui. Or any of the available features in mc (very practical on remote sites, by the way).
I never struggle with fonts. I use Geany, Scite, and xfw. Why do you struggle with fonts exactly ?
