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.

Maybe we should not completely discard the possibility that an RC5 appear.
I favor simplicity over ease of use, and reliability of a release over having it available sooner. We already have -current for those than can benefit from having new features now.
I'd rather Slackware 14 be as bug free as is "reasonable". Otherwise there is no reason to wait for a "stable" release, as we could just keep using a -current snapshot that met our personal technical needs.
I favor getting it right over getting it sooner. There are advantages to speedy releases and having both a stable release (13.37) and -current available to us is the best of both arguments.
We have -current, let's not rush stable. ( Says a man who's been waiting for the next release since late winter. )
I'll duck now while an assortment of items are tossed at my head.
EDIT: Looks like I may have posted in the wrong thread. There's so many threads related to the new release I'm getting them mixed up.
