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
So far my favorites are: Ubuntu 9.10 and Arch Linux.
Now thats what I call a dual-boot
I love my Ubuntu. In fact. I really don't stray very far from the original settings except for a firewall, theme, and Google Chrome. K.I.S.S. for the GUI.
Arch is a newcomer on my scene but I really like it. It teaches me GNU/Linux and I love the easy configuration. K.I.S.S. for the CLI.
Here I will vote for Ubuntu. I'm just so comfortable using it. Every computer I own for the rest of my life will probably see some Ubuntu.

Won't ever see that on Windows. (Except for the warranty part )
I am not saying that .... my distribution was best !! because i am not aware of all distributions. perhaps this may take years to check every distribution with my system. my vote is for "just what i was using". that's openSuSE.
I think I am not qualified to vote, because I use only one distro, and have only briefly tried one or two others this year. So I can't really say how well my distro compares.
let's vote for some thing ! if you think only the people who uses all distro's must vote , then no one remains there. vote for what distro you are using ..!! I don't think my distribution was best ! but I voted to add one user to my distro . hahah
