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.

View Poll Results: Desktop Environment of the Year
yeah, so far, but many polls in the past with both ximian and gnome listed have fractured the gnome vote significantly. i really dont see why people do that, ximian is just a gnome distribution, on the same par as Redhat's, or SUSE's gnome distro, so it really isn't a desktop environment of its own.
Originally posted by trickykid XFce is not that new, to tell you the truth, been around for over 4 years that I know of. Hell, I remember when version 3.8.1 was released back in like May of 2001... The latest release is 4.0.1 which was on 11/14/2003...
Actually, as I recall, XFCE was there before Gnome.
I'm really surprised: after all these years in the shade of KDE/Gnome, it's starting to get some recognition.
My desktop was somewhat rare, cool, you've all ruined it now, stop switching .
i originally voted for kde, but that was before i installed slackware 9.1 with xfce 4 and man was i impressed. everything just worked with the exception of two minor tweaks to lilo and xf86config. i need to change my vote to XFce!
