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.

Distribution choice for a begginer
Interested in Linux but being as i bombed my Programming class,(currently pursuing my BS in Computer Systems) since i was confused with using variables and unclear about the different languages. I noticed that Linux uses alot of programming, how would i be able to use Linux while i'm oblivious to programming. Aside from that which version would make the easiest transition from Windows to Linux, i was considering Linspire but not sure if it would be right for me.
You don't need to be a programmer to use linux. Rather than pay for Linspire which from what I hear isn't the best, I'm gonna suggest either Mandriva or Ubuntu. Suse is good but 10.1 was a pretty average release so if you want to try that, go v10 and then update to v10.2 once it goes gold.
