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.

Re: One thing I hands-down love about new linux OSes

Maybe you could explain how to get antialised fonts. That's the one thing
I absolutely hate about all four of the Linux OSs I've tried - the fonts look
like crap! Yes, I have the M$ TTF fonts installed, and in the font path. I
can select them, but they still look like total crap - especially compared to
the darkside's displays.
if you're using KDE, go to the control panel->Appearance & Themes->Fonts and you should have some options in there for antialiasing. Maybe FC2 turn it on by default, but i had to activate it myself in Suse.

Thanks so much for the suggestion. I did that, and it maybe helped a tiny bit, but they still look like crap. Could be this Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics card. I've thought that text didn't look nearly as good, even in Windoze, since I gave my ATI card away and got this one.
Well, Linux is still pretty much a "hobby kit." It'll get better with age...
