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.

This is really shocking news. I don't mind RH not giving support to their desktop products, but to drop all future releases is really shocking. Does it mean that RH 9 is the last of the series as far as desktop version goes?
Distribution: RH 7.3/8.0/9.0, Debian Stable 3.0, FreeBSD 5.2, Solaris 8/9/10,HP-UX

I myself try to support Distibutions but not once ever needed support from them.. not when the Linux Communities have great sites like this site and many others that are willing to help out.

by dropping support this means no security fixes, no up2date no erratta (sp?) no nothing. so to not care about support being dropped means that u kinda dont care for security warnings from red hat and fixes and things. support means more than just being able to ask them about a problem u are having and them emailing u a response.
Distribution: Fedora Core 2, SuSE 9.1 Professional
I still can't believe that this thread is running! I have been running Fedora now (what WOULD have been RH10) since November 5 (the day it was released) without problems, FULL support from the Fedora team, Up2Date, Apt-get, SECURITY updates, etc., etc., etc! The ONLY thing different is that it's not a COMMERCIAL PRODUCT and that RED HAT's COMMERCIAL BUSINESS is not OFFICIALLY supporting it (like in don't complain to them). In fact, it is not only a GREAT distribution, it IS fully supported, working well, and considerably updated from RH9. It's supported by the Fedora Project crew which is SPONSERED by Red Hat. Could that be any simpler?
Just TRY it if you want, or don't if you want. But this thread has really burned out it's usefulness at this point. Geeez, they are ready to come out with the first test version of Fedora 2 in a few weeks! So, the "shock" is over....and nothing has really changed, except for the BETTER. Remember PAYING for RHN? The support for Fedora is totally FREE...and it IS support (patches, fixes, etc.)....so stop complaining, OK?
Distribution: Fedora Core 2, SuSE 9.1 Professional
Well, OK...I guess I went over the top....LET'S COMPLAIN!!!!! Hey, I woke up
early and was in a bad mood. But I feel much better now! Try Fedora, Don't try it,
Like it, Hate it....Dump it, embrace it....whatever. The really COOL thing is....how
many distro's out there now? HUNDREDS! There has GOT to be something for
EVERYONE!!!! College Linux for a Slack-type mean machine? Fedora for a slow,
lumbering, but jam packed and flexible system? Mandrake for the "everyone"
out there....SuSE for the masses and enterprise....Slack for the purist. I mean,
this thing is really great...and who isn't having fun when they aren't pulling their
hair trying to get something to work.....but ONCE IT'S WORKING...IT WORKS!
I'm off subject now, but I had a cup of coffee and I'm out of control....so I'll shut up.
