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.

I am a SimplyMEPIS fan for every day use. It is really easy to install, or if you don't want to install it, you don't have to - it can run Live. The latest version, 7.0, uses a current but stable base. The primary backing repository comes from the stable Debian branch but it also has access to the volatile - ever changing - applications, such as Email clients and Web browsers and apps with changing media content.
SimplyMEPIS is more stable than Ubuntu current releases and arguably more stable than the Long Term Support (LTS) release as well, but with a return to Debian plus custom kernel work it provides superior hardware detection and works better than most distros with wireless devices. MEPIS is a blend between all free and pragmatic use of non free components. Free stuff is used wherever possible, but the number one goal is a stable, usable desktop and MEPIS does this as well or better than anything in the industry. Worth a ten in my informal reviews and worthy of a nominal purchase of merchandise or products from the company to support the ongoing work and support of this outstanding software. I do not work for MEPIS but I am a community member that wants to see their work recognized and promoted. I cannot think of a better general purpose desktop system, either for value or for stability.
