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.

XFCE 4.2 Beta. It is lightweight and very customised. Most applications will open faster in XFCE that in KDE / Gnome.
The 4.2 version has a menu editor, so that the desktop menu is customisable easier than in the previous versions where you had to edit config files.
For Windows people, KDE is best since it is most similar to Windows.
KDE all the way! In spite of many bad things that people have to say about this DE, I find that in actual usage KDE is very friendly and easy to use. Many people many disagree, but there you are: I am a GUI person and somehow I have never felt comfy with Gnome.
The choice between gnome and kde was really hard. KDE settings and menus are better. Gnome looks cleaner but KDE can look good too. Some things annoyed me in gnome and I couldn't find a way to change it so I chose KDE.
I use fluxbox though.
KDE here, but like others have said XFCE4 has certainly come a long way. Like what kind of window manager can run on a P2 266 with 96ram and a Matrox Mill II ? XFCE4, that's what does - and does it well with resources left over.
