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.

View Poll Results: Desktop Distribution of the Year
Distribution: Fedora (workstations), CentOS (servers), Arch, Mint, Ubuntu, and a few more.
Sure, Ubuntu made the experience pleasing and Mint pushed it even further and many others doing similar good deeds. But as usual, Fedora drives the desktop innovation and the crop of new tech for everyone else. It may not be the shiniest, but Fedora does push the boundaries of Linux while being a true community based project (despite the popular belief). To see what they achieve during the last year, just refer to their feature lists for the 11 and 12 releases. So Fedora gets my vote.
Slackware, naturally . It's clean and it's working as I tell it, I don't have to guess which GUI module overrides my settings. I would recommend Zenwalk for the newbies as an alternative to Ubuntu for general culture, like many before me said it's your choice.
hmmm tough choice. I currently run Slack 13, and it is great... for me. However, as a gernal OS, Probably Ubuntu 9.04 as it did ,just work and is great for moving people from windows over to linux. I have tried a lot of different distros, but I keep coming back to Slack. So it's a toss up. I vote Slack for me, but Ubuntu Generally
As I always vote for the distribution or software that has actually come the longest way or been more present this year, I did not vote for my favorite Slackware - but was instead unsure about whether to point to Arch, which is really picking up followers, or Mint, which I find to be improving constantly with their extremely polished offering, even if they are burdened by being based on Ubuntu. I gave it to Mint this year, but watch out for Arch.
