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 use konqueror mainly because that is what comes with kde... but i do a lot of stuff from the command line too... ideally i'd ike something like Total Commander from Windows, it's still the quickest and easiest file manager to use (IMHO). mc and gnome commander just don't quite live up to total commander.
I voted for Konqueror and I do use the FISH feature sometime. 99% of my work is via the terminal and cd, ls, grep, find are my mainstay. For me point and click is a pain in the tail, and slow. I can do so much more with mv, cp, ls and I now how to use them so why would I want to use a GUI file manager.
I do you Konqueror sometime but it is primarily when I am showing someone new how to do something. Some people just don't want to learn about computers, they just want to point and click and hope. I always thought people should have to get a drivers license before they start to drive -- same goes for computers. One of the main reasons there are fewer exploits against Linux is most of the users are at least somewhat knowledgeable and don't do stupid things like log on as root all the time.
I have noticed that several times "jeremy" has noted that one or the other tool has "been added". Does that mean that it has been added to the poll, and if so what about those of us who have already voted (maybe not for our real favorite)?
