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.

Linux Various Versions and Your Preferences/Experiences?
Which Linux edition do you use and why? Which versions is best for business, marketing, marketing and business programs?
Is it true that Fedora, like Fedora 9 is the best supported distro?
PC Linux OS would be the simplest to use right?
Ubuntu is also straight forward, Fedora more complex? Which is most worthwhile getting used to?
I am thinking of installing Fedora 9 or Ubuntu Hardy Herron on a EHD, say 250 Gig.
Graphics display such as of complex tech drawing is useful here. And Wine which works well, since most people use windows.
So I am interested in varieties of Linux, to choose from in the next few months, and even if I can find links to free Linux program sites and reviews, screen shots. I will also be looking in distrowatch.
All of them can do it (for example the 3d desktop effects, like the spinning cube - it's Compiz Fusion, and very probably available for any distribution you like; the only thing slowing you down is that if there are no precompiled packages for your distribution, you're forced to install the software from source, which isn't difficult but not as straightforward to manage as the "binary packages"). So in the end it's just up to you choosing the one that pleases you most - has the software you want installed out of the box, or installs in the shortest time, or detects your hardware better than the others, or something else.
Good idea, and there are some very good answers above.
Any distro will do the job, it all depends on what you like, and what your friends use. I helps to have more than one running similar OS's so you can help each other, but when that's not the case there is lots of help right here.
