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
Definitely SolydK for me. Best distribution that I've come across in a long time. Sorry Ubuntu users, but I can't stand that 6-month release cycle. Monthly updates without the need to reinstall is just what I needed to keep myself in the Linux desktop world. That and a second computer for Windows to run Office. SolydK Linux is still my main OS.
Well, i switched to Slackware again this year, hopefully perminently. It is serving my purposes almost perfectly now it's 99% setup. I can't see why i'd leave it.
However, i must give this vote to Debian this year for Wheezy. It's a top release. I'm not a fan of the kernel used, but i can understand the logical thinking behind it. Debian is also the #1 distro for pissing me off. It still gets the vote though, for retaining SystemV but at the same time also making System d available. I really appreciate the choice rather than having system d shoved now my throat.
Should be here too. Some people use it as the desktop os, i did for a small period of time.
Since it's missing in the poll, I've voted for Fedora. Fedora with Mate Desktop is quite nice, but I prefer the CentOS long time support. Fedora packages that are interesting for a desktop distribution are available with EPEL. So CentOS is IMHO suitable for the desktop.
