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.

Just a quick note to say that Slackware releases around once yearly, so shelling $50 once a year really isn't much, especially considering most of that goes to Pat (and maybe some of the others) rather than to those making the included software. That is, if you consider the true value of all the free software you get even in a typical Slackware DVD, it's an awful lot of money.
Yes, in Slackware's case, less is definitely more, and it's better as well. Slackware is created and published by a handful of people who promote a higher quality of standards rather than just pushing stuff out, waiting to see what happens, and then repeating it over and over again regardless of what the community says to them.
Having been a long time Slackware user and subscription holder. The price of the subscription to help ensure Pat and the team can continue is a very small price to pay for the product quality they consistently deliver.
I also am a fan of their T-Shirts too and own several!
