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
I love slackware to death.... But I voted for Fedora. I just love Fedora.... Been a red hat/fedora fan boy, ever since the first distro I ever tried was a purchased version of RHEL when I was younger. If I could, I would vote for both.
Edit - I use XFCE on Fedora, and it by far gets the job done.
If, Bodhi were on the ballot I would vote for it. Solid Enlightenment distro which has a fast boot.
Thanks for mentioning Bodhi - just spent some time taking it for a test drive yesterday. +5 for being the stablest e17 experience I've ever had - good enough to be actually usable. However, I got to give Bodhi a -4 for being based on the lamest of lame Linux distros. Why didn't they simply use Debian? Then maybe the nvidia drivers for my graphics card would work. And I wouldn't have to worry about other bugs, er.. I mean strange and unexpected features. Still, if nvidia drivers would work I'd probably make the switch. Bodhi plans to become self distro in future though, so I will watch for this day.
Oh yeah, for those doing the math, Bodhi still gets a +1
There's a whole lot of distro's that could be in just for desktop users, placing SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop here along with opensuse it's quite useless.
I let you with a list of all desktops active distro's:
ARMA aka Omoikane GNU/Linux
BLAG Linux And GNU
COmmodore OS Vision
Linux Caixa Mágica
Max: Madrid Linux
Phayoune Secure Linux
At least in all the poll options you could add the option "Other".
Voted Crunchbang. Feb 2011 release was a great success and Dec 2011 version is proving to be even better, a welcome antidote to the year of gnome shell and unity. Being based on debian stable, CB is rock solid, with plenty of backports to keep things interesting.
