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.

If you look at the number of posts in the Distribution forums, the Slackware forum is the most active here on LQ.org. So it's normal Slack comes first.
Which doesn't mean I dont agree - it just means that it's not a representative result.
isnt also true that linuxquestions.org was set up as a forum for slack users first....thus leading to high amount of slack posts and thus voting slack as the best distro....not that i dont agree (i left red hat for slack and havent looked back since...everything just works....)
My mistake, I don't know what the heck is going on, it seems my mouse has developed a mind of its own. Again, in case my original apology didn't get posted, It is a malfunction or stupidity on my part, either way, my apologies to all.
Regardless, LQ is pretty big, and many users come looking for help, not only for Slackware, but also for other distributions.
The polls just represent what GNU/Linux distribution the LQ users prefer; therefore, we as Slackers, must rejoice in the fact that in LQ our Distro came out victorious in the always difficult run of what distro is better.
