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.

Well, this is a plus to people who want that, but not to those who don't and a lot of people dismiss it as being 'similar to win98' rather than praising it.
But, by default, it has a bar at the bottom with a menu, a quick launch, taskbar buttons, a systray, desktop switcher (win98 doesn't have that by default) and a clock. But so does KDE and a lot of other things. That doesn't really make it like Win98. It's a handful of programs at a handful of megs that is completely configured through about half a dozen text files and leaves system administration completely up to the user (no registry and no My Computer and no wizards and whatnot - not even any desktop icons). It's very configurable, as well. The toolbar can be removed and the programs can be accessed with a right-click on the root window so that it looks and acts a lot like your minimalist wm's such as fluxbox or pek. All the many keybindings are up to you. The themes are easy to modify so you can turn everything black and neon green or make it very Win98ish or what have you. The winoptions file is a very powerful means of making certain windows behave certain ways, akin to pek's autoproperties. It just manages windows and does an excellent job of it.
That said, yeah, mine *looks* a lot like a much-improved Win98, too.

The vapour that was DR17 finally began to solidify this year, which was also a very surprising event for many. We _are_ voting for window manager of the _year_, right?
By next year's poll, E will likely have been moved to the DE category.
