Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

the list goes on. LQ is the least accurate, IMO. i think someone's been "cheating". i dont think it is possible to accurately measuer the "best distro", because people are constantly switching and getting a new fav, like me. first it was mandrake for a few years, then mandrake went downhill, then slackware was next. then i got suse 9.0 and im hooked on suse and i think linux cant get any easier. but my vote still goes to slackware, because it kept me the longest, and its pretty easy, programs "just work", and it's fast.(not as fast as most people brag, but it has its high points)
Some of those are outdated (2002). Due to redhat's change in policy, even the combination of redhat and fedora has probably decreased because some people got miffed. Debian's next major release (sarge) is projected for 2005, and despite apt-get that seems to scare away some people. Any poll is going to be inaccurate with few people answering, and none of these had a lot of answers.
