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 decided to try out Fuduntu, then I realized I can't get download anything through the terminal using 'apt-get install'. Is it because Fuduntu isn't in existence anymore and the repositories are basically useless? If so how can I add Ubuntus repositories?
Do not try to mix programs from different distros unless you are very experienced.
Firstly, as pointed out, they use different packaging systems.
Secondly, they name their packages differently and put library files in different places. One distro will put file A in package X, another will put it in package Y. One will have gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10, another gstreamer.0.10-plugins-good! You end up with what we call 'dependency hell'.
Distribution: Debian Sid AMD64, Raspbian Wheezy, various VMs
