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.

Adjusting using the number of votes / number of threads per year in each forum (popularity), I get that Slackware got slightly more votes than Fedora. Debian got more than Slackware for both desktop and server. The numbers for Arch and Mint are inaccurate because of the very low number of threads and possible recruitment of voters. Ubuntu got plenty of votes and has plenty of threads.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy/Jessie/Sid, Linux Mint DE

If the cars were still the same technology as in the 1980-ies I would do the tune-up. Replacing a head gasket is not my favorite job but I did it several time. But please, tell me what "Suck, Squeeze, Pop!, Phooey!" refers to!.
Edit: Ah, I know. Those are the 4 cycles of a 4-stroke engine. But I have never seen it referred to like that.
Edit2: and how do they refer to a 2-stroke engine?
