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 was really hoping for Mageia 2 to come out and had really high hopes with it but were shattered right after full installation.
I selected all the desktops and WM's and hoped full installation, still a lot of things went missing like kpp and virtualbox to name a few.
The package manager confuses you and still not implemented well. At least one repository could have been enabled right after by default rather than those annoying pop ups about missing media and all.
kde looks good but slows down everything else.
E17 installation was broken without any mention of how and why. PCmanFM never opened.
I don't want to crib anymore but I'm not going to suggest it to my Linux-newbie friends.
