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.

Sabayon is the easiest rolling-release distro to use in my opinion. I have tried Arch and found it not to be newbie friendly. If you want to try Arch and you are a newbie... try Chakra Linux or KahelOS both based on Arch.
Sabayon comes with out-of-the-box functionality and they have a nice user-community who will help you out if you have any problems.

I am on Sabayon 5.3 and its a very functional and nice to look at and use distro...so that means I can spend more time with distros that require more attention thus increasing my learning... I like Sabayon... recommended
I tried the Sabayon CDX the other day and it seemed ideal for someone with a reasonable internet connection but a small computer. You just get the kernel, a minimal GUI, xterm, nano, lynx, and a software installer. Then you can assemble your own set of programs.
My general impression was of a well-constructed distro that just worked, with a good user community. And not being from the US, you get the media codecs without the contortions needed with Suse or Fedora.
If you want to try Arch and you are a newbie... try Chakra Linux or KahelOS both based on Arch.
Sorry, but I totally disagree with that statement. If you try Chakra or KahelOS you are exactly doing that, trying Chakra or KahelOS, not Arch. If you want to try Arch there is only one way to do it: Try Arch. Or would you recommend to anyone to try Ubuntu for having a look at Debian?
