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.

"Ultimate Edition 2.6 is fast and lacks no feature. Wireless was my number 1 concern, it works out of the box. I have embedded many features I am certain you will be glad to have. I will be honest in informing you that some of you ATI users will be capable of firing up Compiz Fusion (all GPUs will be supported in the same aspect in the future). I have introduced Cheese for you webcam users. Cinelerra, K3d and Kdenlive are just a few new tools in this release. We have put GIMP back in as well. There are tools that go well beyond the call of duty. I will not tell you what Ultimate Edition 2.6 has in store for you. Take it for a spin you won't be sorry."

Has Everything! Almost nothing to add.
Thunderbird does not do well with Compiz for some reason.
Installed on several systems with no major problems other than Thunderbird (my favorite) does not work well with high end graphics. The ability to remove or disable programs instead of adding helps a lot when you don't have a lot of bandwidth at your disposal. Personally I like switching from Gnome to KDE which is easy. This is not a light distro, very heavy on space and works better with newer systems.
As of late I have been using it as my primary on my main Desktop and Laptop. Try it, you'll like it.
