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.

On the servers I administer Gentoo is the one I like the most. Portage is very nice and it is great how you can minimise the number of installed applications/features so that it run only what is needed.
Any *nix can be used as a server...I can install apache on Ubuntu and call it a web server.
Some distros are designed for "Servers" in mind...and others with "Desktop" in mind. That's what this poll is about. To avoid confusion, it should say "Best distro that was designed for Servers"...but you'd think that us "Genius Linux Users" would figure that out
I'm just waiting for:"I just installed apache on my PCLinuxOS machine...how come PCLinuxOS isn't on this poll?"
