Rules of the thread, since it is sticky and all:

1) Any off-topic posts in this thread may be deleted or split at any time.
2) Please post your links short enough that they don't break the tables. Use TinyURL to make them shorter, or use the BBcode [url] tag to make them into hyperlinks with shorter text.
3) Any posts with inappropriate links may also be deleted.
4) Links can be linux related without being distribution specific -- useful software, download sites, that kind of thing, are welcome, too.
5) Try to keep your number of posts to a minimum -- that way we don't have to go through page after page of posts :) Feel free to edit your original posts.
6) Read the thread before you post links or edits -- make sure your links haven't already been posted.

Thanks!

Linux on Laptops -- great resource for getting laptops up and running. Often the links are distribution specific, but you can get the information you need.

Forums:
Mandrake Club -- yes, they want you to pay to join, but you can read the stuff in the forums for free, and the front page is basically a Mandrake blog.
Gentoo Forums -- check the Gentoo forums for questions that have been answered, or questions that can't be answered by our resident users
FedoraForum -- similar resource for Fedora, with a blog on the front page.
LinuxQuestions Slackware Forum -- another forum, this time for Slackware. LinuxQuestions has many forums, check them all out.

Mailing Lists:
Slackware Lists
Gentoo Lists
Fedora Lists
Mandrake Lists
Debian Lists
Linux Kernel Mailing List -- make sure you read the FAQ

IRC:
Most Linux IRC channels are going to be found on freenode (irc.freenode.net).

mIRC -- IRC client for Windows
X-Chat -- Graphical client for Linux (has a windows version that works free for 30 days, or you can find a binary somewhere else)
BitchX -- Text client for Linux
ircle -- IRC client for MacOS (if you have fink, you can generally get the Linux clients too)

Fedora IRC Channels
Debian IRC Channels
Gentoo IRC Channels

Other distributions and projects have IRC channels on FreeNode that may not be listed on their site, like Slackware (#slackware) and Knoppix (#knoppix) for example. You can do a /list command when you are connected to find out all of the channels.

Software sites:
FreshMeat
SourceForge

Themes and backgrounds:
Themes @ Freshmeat -- huge library, used to be themes.org
MacDesktops -- I know it says Mac in the name, but some of the backgrounds are awesome, and they have high and widescreen resolutions

As always, Google is your friend.

Other links:
Howtos that are Mandrake 9.x/10.x oriented, but apply to other distributions in many cases.

kde-look: the theme site for anything KDE
The Linux Game Tome: Linux game repository
Easy URPMI: An easy tool to add URPMI sources to your Mandrake distribution. Probably most useful for setting up a contrib source: new packages created by the Mandrake community (and consequently not supported)

Also, for those who don't want to actually install Linux right away, they can try it out with a number of Live Disk distros.

Many of whom are reviewed here:

easylinuxcds.com

$35 for a set of 12 different distros, 20-something cds ($30 plus s&h).
Ordered it today. Useful for me because I didn't want to download them with my download manager because that would take forever, and my poor little laptop can't last a whole lot longer as it is. O yea, they had single distros for like $6.

I don't suppose it would make sense to post a link leading to these forums...[/code]
