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.

The ArchWiki has been very useful/resourceful to me in the past. I have never participate at the ArchForums since I use LQ forums for issues. Our LQ forums are moderated but tend to be open & helpful for members.
I've used the Arch wiki to setup a uniform look between my Qt and GTK programs in Xfce.
And more recently, some of their udev rules regarding the Xbox360 controller works on Slackware too.
IMHO, the Archlinux documentation is one of the most complete documentation I've ever read.
Don't get me wrong on this : I don't blame the Slackware one nor any other documentation.
That's just a mere tought.
Folks cringe and hate when Arch users tell someone to RTFM but that is the exact reason why, which leads back to my other comments about the community. The rudeness the community is famous for (which falls just behind the freeBSD community) stems from this exact reason why should I waste my time paraphrasing what the wiki says when you can just go read it yourself. If you have questions after the reading the wiki and searching the internet you'll get help but if you ask to get your hand held you'll be told to HTFU. This is LCD Linux not the finer points of quantum physics someone somewhere has had your problem and the answer is spelled out.
Every body hates the Archlinux forums, and their moderators. Those who love them, can kiss their ....
Do you use Arch? BTW, then change this thread title as 'State your opinion on Arch forum and their mods'. That's fair enough. Don't use just Arch Linux without any reason.
EDIT And I saw, everybody love Arch wiki. Can I ask why that you mentioned 'everybody' [I'm not a one of that 'everybody'] hates Arch forum? [It's all because you don't read forum rules. Isn't it? You doing wrong things and blaming Arch. Very funny.]
