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.

Easy to install, leaves the desision as to su or not to the user.
not the best for sound card support.
A stable OS with good support (via forum)requires regular updates (weekly or fortnightly) but is very simple to do.
As PcLinuxOs is continuously updated it is always bang up to-date.
Software not in the repository (it is huge) seems easy to install as rpm.
I have not marked this as excellent as in all OS.s there is always room for improvement but it sure comes the top for me.
I attempt to try most distributions over time, if they crash on first install I consider them as not worth trying again until a new version comes out.
Strangely enough I have as yet to get a straight UBUNTU to work first time! but have many of the derivatives.
My system has 10 hard disks, 2 optical drives two sound cards, dual cpu's (Intel), gforce 9500GT video card, two mice and two keyboards, as well as trust wp8060 tablet.
Works as a server in the background, desktop development in the foreground.
All works well accept sound, fiddly to get working at times.
