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.

I think it's cute when elitism hopefuls shrug off the two biggest DE's by saying they're great for newbies switching over from Windows. As someone who remembers the time when the command line was king and once swore vengeance upon all GUI makers, I thank KDE for giving me something I can not only live with, but come to love.
KDE is the winner here. Not 'cause of it's user friendly environment but also for too much things you can do with it. It's highly configurable and especially konqueror makes the difference in all the apps KDE comes with, it saves a lot of time of handy work. Ok it has some good crashes from time to time but who's perfect?
xfce beats KDE on nicities
and MUCH more important, on speed
once you do really CPU investing tasks, you understand what i mean
and you will switch from KDE away.
Probably is valid for GNOME too, but i
a) havent tested GNOME for as long as I had with KDE
b) this is probably the wrong thread for me to rant or praise
