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.

First post and I'm voting for slackware. Used arch for a while, then switched to freebsd. But, my friends hounded me abou slackware and decided try it out. Don't think I'm going to be distro hopping for a while
I voted for Ubuntu. I was the first distro I EVER used and before that I was a less than average windows user. And I truely believe a Windows person (or Mac person) could move to Ubuntu now and not have too large a learning curve and not be missing too much. And Ubuntu (Canonical) has the money to back up their stuff, funded by corporate support and by services like the Ubuntu store and cloud sync which is now in beta for WINDOWS lol They are doing things the way Microsoft should have all along, and because of that they will be the driving force to be putting Linux as a whole in a much higher standing both in respect in having from the other OS's and in over all market share. Sorry those who posted Slackware, but fact don't lie, and I don't slackware will go ANYWHERE any time soon. So no worries
Location: Brazil, state of São Paulo, Jundiaí city
Distribution: Debian squeeze/wheezy; LMDE-XFCE
I have chosen Debian
I don't know all the distributions, but I know some of them.
Debian is very light to my old machine.
I use Lenny. It is very stable.
Furthermore, Debian is easy to use in a Desktop, mainly because of apt-get and the support of the international Forum.
KDE is the best desktop environment for Debian, yet I use many GTK, Gnome and X applications.
