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.

I also agree,
I've got it on mine, my wife's, & our media box.
Slack64 makes an excellent media box. I haven't found anything that doesn't work on it. Smplayer & Pokerth built without issues.
I made most of my packages with Slamd64 12.2 and they all work after installing Fred's 32 libs as well as the kde3compat & k3b for 3.10 stuff in /extra.
Gnucash, Kaffeine, K9copy, and a whole bunch of other stuff from my Slamd64 12.2 system works.
I used Eric's packages for Digikam and Vlc.
Open Office seems rather slow tho.
Mmm, KDE4 is slowly growing on me (like fungus? ). My first impression of it was: "Hey! This is not Slackware!", the same sort of feeling I had about the ambigram logo.
Its growing on me as well. I've been slowly coming around to the eye candy portion too. I finally enabled desktop effects about 4 days ago, and now I'm trying out the different effects. My windows explode when I close them. I even tried the wobbly effect, but I still ain't real crazy about that.
Next up is to try the snowfall - maybe in a day or two!
