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.

Shite! This damn thing will _not_ die if you hit it with a pile driver, drive a wooden stake through the heart, shoot silver bullets coated with garlic, explode a petrol tanker near it, redirect meteors from outer space, infect with anthrax ... etc. A Hollywood nightmare.
Slackware-current has just had a major bump with a new version of X. KDE 4.8.2 has been released. XFCE 4.10 is under active development for inclusion. All the developers (including the BDFL) have been active in this forum in the last week. The heart is pumping hard, the lungs are heaving. Slackware is alive and kicking!
@OP - Please, please, please edit the title of your post to read "Slackware is dying - NO WAY!!" and then mark it as solved.
I think the multiple posts on this topic shows the danger of not having a working website for people interested in trying Slackware. I'm thinking back to when I started, and I'm honestly not sure if I would have bothered looking into the distro if its website was down since I don't know what I know now.
