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.

Having not run every OS above, it seems weird to vote. The question is "what's the best", not "what do you run". Maybe I'm thinking too hard. BTW I run Debian Lenny on everything, except when using a rescue OS. I'm too lazy to try everything :}
I've hopped a few distros, learned a bit about what I like. Then I made a list of requirements of my ideal distro. Lo and behold, it exists. So I know the best is what I run without having tried every OS from the list (it's not even on the list but "Debian" will do).
I've been using Ubuntu since introducing version 5.04
and I can say, the differences happened are really interesting
and worth mentioning......
aside, this WINE application has let me not to use windows that often
and sure, about the security, Ubuntu, the Linux O/P I use.... is really wonderful
the desktop, I like, the colors, more than 1 workspace make it easier to use, ease of use... amazing
now, I can do all, with a heart of steal
yes, "some" are not activated under Ubuntu/Linux still, but as I see, all will be activated soon
This poll is a bit stupid. We are not comparing like with like. I use gentoo myself, but would not recommend it to a beginner. For him/her, Ubuntu would be the best. It all depends on the use one wants from the computer.
Why am I a LQ newbie? I was using linux before Linux Questions existed
