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
I used to love the old GNOME 1.4, but it's dead and gone now Except in Debian Woody...
Used KDE for a long time, but kept jumping back to GNOME.
Now I prefer GNOME (2.8.1 rocks!!), and will probably not go back to KDE again (KOffice lacks in support for MS Office file types - but I admit has some other nice features (that I don't use...)).
I use kde for my recent machine
and xface for my old machine.
When I need a lot of computation on my
powerful machine, I switch to xface desktop.
Gnome is very pretty and one must have some
experience with it. It is useful for Linux
community to know that they can have a high
standing graphic desktop. Sometime
( during presentation / game / home cinema for example), one can use it!
KDE. I gave GNOME 2.6 a real try, but ended up just hating it and switching back to KDE. I don't know what's so "pretty" about GNOME, unless you're trying to get it to look like Mac OSX, which is about the only thing it does well. I'd rather use XFCE than GNOME any day, but why would I since now I have a high-end system? So, yes, KDE.
