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.

Originally posted by alylff kde is very powerful.but it sound server does not work good with some applications.
That's why I don't use it. I don't understand why arts is needed on top of alsa. Alsa can perfectly mix the sound for me. I would use arts (simply because KDE favours it) but it's buffer causes a sound delay while playing video's.
Originally posted by s1ider KDE gets its power by being well designed, modular, flexible, and extremely well integrated. Gnome gets its functionality by writing down UI standards, enforcing them, and dumping stuff that does not follow them. The end result is that Gnome is less functional than it was two years ago; KDE is 10x more functional.
Heck, most of the time when people talk about the things they like about Gnome they are not even talking about Gnome. OpenOffice.org... not a Gnome app; Firefox.. not a Gnome app; Evolution wasn't even an official Gnome app until this last stable release (2.8). Even XFCE has been making more headway than Gnome.
Any previous year I would have said KDE. But this year, XFCE. As many people have pointed out, it's really come a long way, and I am definitely now more impressed with it than anything else at this point.

that's why i said it's messy, buggy, and overstuffed to me. and i cannot believe your kde can run faster than gnome. but anyway there is no point to compare their performance thanks to xfce4.
I realize that icewm isn't a de, but I like to use it with a lot of kde progs & a couple of gnome progs in my menu. Works great for me . I like a lot of the kde apps (which I run frequently - kontact, korganizer, etc) & have never noticed much of a slowdown when compared to gnome apps when I log into them - maybe 512 mb of ram has something to do with this, but when I click on a button or type something into the cli I want it to respond now, which a lot of the gnome apps aren't doing for me. Then again I've been told I'm wierd before so this would be nothing new
Originally posted by CoolAJ86 GNOME is what will bring GNU/Linux to the Desktop, IMHO. KDE isn't 100% free (due to qt) and it's just to complicated. GNOME is like Mac - very simple and easy to use. KDE is too cluttered.
I don't understand where you are going with this. Its not a troll, is it (not pun intended)?
