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've tried Fedora (4 years); ZorinOS (3 years); Ubuntu with Gnome classic Desktop (2 years). I've settled on Ubuntu -- its clean, flexible, fast, reliable. Cons- have to do a lot of app installs myself that don't come with package. But then tha is also one of it's Pros (I can choose!).
Distribution: 12.04.2 have had rh9.0 checking now ,dsl,ubuntu, pclos, smoothwall3,fedora,mandravia,
being a user but not a programer , I Have settled on Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS , ie a long time supported OS . my complaint with Windows was they wanted me to pay for another OS every 3 to 5 years and relearn every thing and replace everything . I have been trying various flavors since 1998 and none were simple enough for me to use until 12.04.1 .. HOw easy is it , I have now got a friend serfing the net with 12.04.4 version and he loves the speed of it and the hackers have been cut out of his system . As for me , it plays DVD , youtube , AND Tradingveiw.com works . If it was not for older games , i would drop my Win98SE and XP systems . As it is , when trading , I put a lubuntu disc in these older systems to use them [ it has suppport for these older comps where as 12.04.x does not.
