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
Thanks to anticapitalista and mepis community antix and MX have became very stable, decent and popular. However, I still haven't seen any distro close to Slackware with respect to simplicity and flexibility. My vote goes for Slackware same as last year.
A lot of the OLDER machines that ran Win ME/95/98 only had about 1 GB and need a distro that will work at that point/ My vote goes to AntiX and MX, which will run on those machines. The newer distros forget about them.
Distribution: Ubuntu, openSUSE, and always looking at others!
Lots of good ditros here, I've actually tested or used a number of them if only briefly, but for polish and professionalism, I used openSUSE mainly, then, due to how much simpler and easier it was for adding multimedia and other programs I needed quickly, I put Ubuntu on my main PC now.
openSUSE is still my main 2nd but I came to realize, I always kind of had Ubuntu in the back of my mind for when I just needed something to work, so my vote went to it.
Always look forward to this time of year, Jeremy, thanks for this poll!
Solus has developed a new nice desktop, let's see where it goes from here! But users at reddit have asked the developer why he has created a new package manager, and he basically answered that it was just for the sake of it, and that the package manager is not his priority at all. It is a very bare-bones package manager with lots of work, but no innovation at all. It is really a deal breaker for me!
