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.

Well because when they post a link from their own forums to tell their members to come sign up to vote, that might just inflate the actual votes of a particular project in which the actual majority of the members here don't use it..
From what I recall, there are a lot of Slackware users here, it's won a majority of the time since these have been started a few years back.
Kubuntu has helped me turn 5 people away from windows the day I passed the free CDs, and I've converted many more after that point. I love it. KDE looks better than GNOME to me, but opinions can change, so meh.
Puppy, if I can burn a copy soon, will save my fat arse from hell on this old PC.
Not sure that "Distro of the year" means "The distro I prefer". Maybe such award should go to the distro that more than others brought innovation, opened new perspectives or gained popularity.
Anyway, since everybody voted for the preferred distro, I voted for PCLinuxOS.
Not sure it is the best amongst all other distros, but sure enough it proved the best for my system and for its owner. Furthermore, in 2006, it received lots of favourable reviews, with very few criticisms, if any, and its popularity rose a lot.
Without PCLinuxOS, maybe I could have resigned with Linux one year ago, more or less after one year of disappontments from other distros.
Debian for me, I've tried so many distro's and have always come back to Debian. It's not hard to set up, I have all multimedia working, it's fast and very stable. Not to mention the thousands of packaged available with apt.!!
First I have to tell you I'm new in Linux. I have UBUNTU installed in my computer, but have trouble with my video/monitor (?)resolution. My friend gave me a live Knoppix CD and I get the desired resolution on my computer I wonder if UBUNTU is somewhat lacking with its graphics?
