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.

It looks just like Mepis 3.4 (with the difference that it comes with KDE 3.5) It also uses the same hardware detection, and it works the same -- the only difference that users will see will be that sources.list point to dapper repos and that if you do a dpkg -l you'll see "ubuntu" to the end of the packages.
I would advice general public not to install it: not because it's not good, but because is experimental and it's based on Dapper that's not released yet => things will break, it's only meant as a sneak peek.
it's pretty SWEET. i loaded it yesterday. it made it through the update with all of the repositories checked & didn't break. the firefox 1.5 font bug is still there. i run the mozilla package instead of the included one to get around that. i've been distro hopping trying to find one that had kde 3.5 & would let me have open office 2.0. i'm going to try to install the edutainment packages today. if that doesn't break it, it's a keeper.
6.0 Bata 1 (the latest) is now on distro watch. Enjoy. I've had it on a drive for a couple days now and it is solid. Lacks flash player though I think it can be installed, I just haven't had time to play.
