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.

Nice article, Drew! I hope more Slackware reviews will take this approach in the future.
It would have been nice to mention the additions of fuse, ntfs-3g, and the new boot splash. They are just more icing on the already full cake.

You were able to communicate the positive attributes of Slackware without resorting to the oft-used and tiresome comparison to other distros. You obviously know your intended audience. For those who are considering migrating from other distros, and who are looking for a challenging and rewarding Linux experience, you've presented Slackware in the best possible light without the slightest hint of snobbery or condescension.
