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 pulled the beta a few weeks back - tried to install it into a VirtualBox guest. It died somewhere early on, twice. I tossed it, and re-used the guest for SLES.
I have a non-virtualised F12 system that needs an update - I might have a look at getting the F13 DVD over the coming week. I'm interested in how they've integrated btrfs and snapshots for the updates.
Pre-upgrade only - although it looks like it will become the standard recommendation. Bloody stupid. It's in the doco somewhere; common problems maybe.
I'm just about to install. Talk to you in a while.
Well that didn't take too long - decided to move partitions to expand the boot, re-install grub prior to the install. What rubbish.
Install itself went smooth except that it didn't find the BMC ethernet - final system uses the tg3 driver without any input from me.
I don't usually bother keeping an eye on it (i7 laptop with 8 Gig). On F12 I put lm-sensors on and conky for a display. Needed to load coretemp separately for some reason.
I'll look at that later on F13.
Edit: Seems the default fan control is better (if not perfect). Supposedly the Radeon driver was an issue on F12.
Considering that Red Hat makes sure all Fedora 12 bugs are cleaned before the RHEL 6 release, and that all of those bugs are overflown to Fedora 13 and 14 also, I am not surprised that Fedora 13 it is better then 12.
