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.

I prefer Opera and so I installed that with great ease. A simple unzip and one command and it was up and running. seems stable so far, and flash and java plugins worked without any settings tweaked.
Noticed when I ran Pokerstars and Amarok at the same time I was able to hear both programs, this is the first *nix desktop that I have had that could multiplex. This will be swell if I can get ventrilo running. That shouldn't be hard, wine just needs a little help. I haven tun much in...
So I guess I've tried most of the major distros out there, and I can't really say that I have a favorite. But I can say that I love linux over everything else out there.
What *did* surprise me was, I ordered a new XPS M1530 laptop from Dell, with Ubuntu pre-installed, and what do you know? They got it right! Fantastic machine, killer OS, other than Dell's idea of customer service (no such thing available), nothing but a very positive experience.
