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.

Don't forget the many automated proxy sites that allow you to create as many IPs + logins with a single click (mostly used for warez downloads with rapidshare and friends). Most of them are actually new and did not exist (at such a large scale) a few years ago...
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
It is frowned upon, but we do have non-IP related measures in place to detect. It's not, however, something we go very far to try to stop. That's strictly for registration though and has nothing to do with how the polls are audited. As I mentioned previously - everyone is more than welcome to vote (and join).
PostgreSQL of course, apart other things, the license is BSD! I can't understand why people are still using MySQL.
Oracle already bought InnoDB, and the MyISAM engine is just too old.
Also, MySQL doesn't support transactions on altering tables, so if I have to change the DB structure (which always happens), I have to stop the site and tell the users: "Oh, please wait a while... MySQL doesn't support transactions...".
