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 think it has it's own style (which you may not like), it's just Slackware simplicity and can be browsed very nicely in text mode
I took a look at different distros pages and I still think Slackware's one is a good looking page (and it doesn't have images).
gbonvehi has a good point, sites like slackware.com gnu.org and kernel .org look good in text mode which i think is the point. if you run a server with no x environment on it you can still fire up lynx or what not and easily navigate the sites to get needed updates. some of the other distros may have a more eye catching layout but without starting up a graphical web browser there's no way of finding anything on it.
Originally posted by BrianW I always thought that the Slackware website was a very good indicator of what Slackware is all about. Simple and straight forward, no getting lost in increasing menus and categories.
I agree. There are other nix sites that have all kinds of cool stuff but they should spend a little less time "marketing" and work on their distros.
Originally posted by killerbob The Slack website is, by far, one of the most useful websites out there. It's about time somebody clued in to the fact that flash/bells/whistles detract from the surfing experience, not enhance it.
the layout is ok. i just think some parts should be written again.
an observation: in the "about" section of www.slackware.com you see the name of some guys that helped the project. if i remember correct one of them left the project in 2002. it means that the information in the website should be updated. some years untouched.
