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.

Could be the last year for this poll, if we have another 90% winner.
Might be kind of silly, but you could just declare bash the winner and have a second place poll. The results might well be different than just whoever finishes up in second against bash. A ksh vs. zsh (etc) poll. I'd probably vote for ksh if I didn't have bash. Such a poll might at least encourage experimentation whereas doing away with it might just seem like sweeping the command line under the carpet. (I know that's not at all the situation, I'm just saying a shell of the year seems like a necessary category.)
And I don't use it but that plan9-ish 'rc' shell or whatever it is could be on there.
I've learned an awsome lot about bash last year. Simple and effective. And I concur, even if we know who will be the winner, why cancel the poll. It's just as intresting to see the developments of other contestants.
Let's go, TENEX C Shell!! I feel bad for you, because nobody votes for you. But I like you because I use you on my BSD boxen for historical feelings. Still, it has been well observed that you should never script in C shell.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy / BackTrack 5/ Linux Mint 17
Please don't cancel this poll. Even though Bash will more than likely win, I enjoy reading other peoples comments on why they choose something other than Bash. Who knows, if I read the right comment, I could switch. I have been looking at Ksh a little because of anothers comments.
