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.

Ubuntu/Kubuntu 8.10 has to to be the best thing since sliced bread. I wonder that Microsoft bothered with trying to come up with something to compete with Linux after their Vista fiasco. If one wants the best of all worlds it can only be Linux.
I wouldn't go for any of the above listing above sidux - I'm surprised it's not in the desktop line-up. sidux is 'the package' for a fast, reliable, leading edge linux install and I, and my 'clients' by default (!), wouldn't use anything else!
Ubuntu - from the 8.04 to 8.10, Ubuntu has delivered on not only a GOOD LOOKING desktop, but an incredibly easy to use, functional desktop. I've tried Gentoo and love it, I tried OpenSolaris and its okay, but to come in and challenge the status quo (Windblows) with such confidence definitely deserves top desktop honors. Ubuntu is NOT what Linux is all about, but Ubuntu DOES show the versatility of linux to not only appeal to the developers with distros geared for them, but also the average user that just wants something that works.
