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.

Greetings! I thought that it would be interesting to see what type of desktops that we are all running on BSD. Please feel free to display your desktop images in this thread. All BSD users are welcome. I will start. This is OpenBSD 5.1 and XFce 4.8.3. The BSDs are awesome!
I also run tend to setup Xfce when configuring FreeBSD for general desktop use. It super quick and simple to setup and provides a nice basic DE, without going overboard. I'd post a screenshot but it looks pretty much the same as yours (but for the default Xfce background), so it wouldn't be that interesting! :P
Edit: FreeBSD 8.3, Xfce 4.8 (is what I have been testing Opera on recently, though I have a FreeBSD 9.0 install as well)

Reason: added FreeBSD and Xfce version numbders, like hitest
I hope this is not considered necro-posting, but I thought it better to post my screenshot here than to start a new thread.
After working mostly in console on my FreeBSD box to this point, today I finally got around to setting up my Fluxbox and adding a theme to Firefox to make me feel more at home - you may note some similarity to my Slackware desktops! Old dogs...
This is FreeBSD 10, Fluxbox with the Scythe theme from here, and Dark Fox no-logo from the Mozilla themes page.
Today I added TaskWarrior to my FreeBSD machine and set it to sync with my other Slackware machines (the open Tmux window in the screenshot). Now my FreeBSD machine is truly integrated into my workflow and no longer just a learning experience!
I was already feeling right at home with FreeBSD, but this closes the circle nicely!
