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.

Ditched windows and jumped into Linux about 6 months ago with Xubuntu 64 bit. It was nice... got me used to the Xfce layout. I planed on using Slackware in the beginning but Xubuntu seemed less troublesome. I even played with Fedora Core for a bit. They weren't for me.
2 days ago I ditched Xubuntu (I don't like how they are taking features away from users like changing the GDM) and finally got Slack 13. After 2 days of learning new commands and compiling packages (open office, Xfce plugins, etc.) I got an amazing setup! Slackware is the best distro I've ran so far and I'm pretty sure I'm going to stick with it.
I used some of the topics here while setting up... VERY helpful. Needless to say you can expect questions from me in the future!
