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.

Distribution: Gentoo for me, Slackware for servers
This was a hard one. For me, fluxbox, and thats the one I vote. This year I change a few times of window manager.
First Enlightment, its fast, nice, but hard to drive. That take me off from it.
Then metacity with Gnome, don't make me a great desktop, also, the velocity decreases a lot. So switch to the firsts alphas of xfce 4.
XFCE4: great, just what I was specting from a GTK2 WM. Great tools, nice manager, easy to configure an drive, but in a few months I get bored of it.
Openbox: I allways like *box, back in the days of slackware 3, blackbox drive me crazy ;-). But this was no so good, maybe in a few years...
Fluxbox: O_O, when I got it running (took me a time to get it as I like) is great, perfect I must say. First I toke a chance with the beta, but gkrellm was show on the taskbar so I say "let gets stable" , then 0.1.. Love it! Runs fine, managin it is fully aceptable, dockapping tools... got all, I don't know wath to say... try it!
OpenBox got my vote, though I would have voted for FVWM if it were on the list. I went through the various *box WMs but settled on FVWM because with a little patience you can configure most every aspect of how it works. O.K. make that a lot of patience.
