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.

View Poll Results: What do you think of the new slackware logo??
I hadn't heard of this. Just stopped by the Slackware site to have a look at the new logo. IMHO it's horrible. It makes the site look like it was vandalized or something. The idea of being able to read it upside down is interesting, but, I've seen some pretty bad distro logos in my time, and this one is at the top of the list - at least for me.
I voted no, but I don't hate it, I just don't think it reflects what I personally think of Slackware. I really hope Pat won't lose money if people don't like it and don't buy goodies. I like the way Arch Linux had a logo contest. Most people seem pleased. Here are their submission guidelines if you care to check them out.
Hope something good comes out of it somehow
I just noticed that your previous poll was closed by XavierP on the basis that there is already a place to share your opinions about this. He asked you to post in that thread instead, so I don't understand why you would then go and do precisely what he asked you not to do. Am I missing something here?
If you want to make a 'c' and a 'k' look like a 'w' when upside down, then you have to accept that they're going to look like a 'm' when they're the right way up. To me the new design reads 'Slamwars'. Also, the 'e' to an 'S' is a little bit too far of a stretch for my mind. As I said before, its a good attempt, but it's a good attempt at something that's just not possible to do 'right'.
There's also the point that someone else made in one of the other threads that this logo isn't friendly to folk with visual impairments.
Please Note: I'm not "complaining", "crying", "whinnging" or "whining", just giving my feedback on the new logo and stating that I strongly believe that Pat has made a mistake adopting this new design as the official logo.
I prefer the simple elegant styling of the old one. However, my personal preferences for the official slackware logo still remains the Slackware 'S' on the blue roundel. If you want to bring it up to date, to make the kids happy, give the circle that trendy glassy 'aqua' look that's all the rage at the moment.
Right, that's me done. said all I'm going to on this now.
Which part of "there is an existing live thread covering this subject here http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...w-logo-663233/ " don't you get? We do not need multiple threads on the same subject in the same forum. If you wish to share your opinion, do so in the original thread and keep the discussion in one place.
