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.

Hey guys, I am trying to find the best lightweight OS for my asus eee pc seashell series which I mainly use for programming; nothing heavy of any sort, just simple programs written in c++ and java for projects and stuff, I have my main pc for android studio and whatnot.
I'm currently using windows 7 ultimate 32-bit and it gets quite slow when I'm running netbeans + oracle sql and a couple of documents and web browsers etc.
I have used Ubuntu 2 years ago for about a year, other than that I don't know anything about Linux distros. I have researched a few distros yet still skeptical about satisfying my needs especially the programming part.
Thanks in advance.
Distribution: BSD & Linux - As long as they are Lightweight
Personally, I think all ubuntu distros are a bit bloated, you should be looking for a lightweight distro like AntiX, http://antix.mepis.com/index.php?title=Main_Page which will leave you most of your memory free for your programs to use.
Out of your list, Linux Lite would probably be best.
