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
Although I've been a long time Gnome fan, I've found that the KDE desktop has improved a LOT..
However, to vote otherwise (against the 'Nome) wouldn't be right!
Despite some of the apparent "dumbing down" design changes, I still find the 'Nome' to be the best.
Kde is best.
Gnome sucks, its to bad because it was almost becomming good and it is so many excellent softwares in the GNU world.
Fluxbox is faster, and have much better configuration facilities as gnome.
KDE is a very nice desktop enviroument but at the same time it a little bit complex for normal home users. i think that a lot of items on the KDE menu can be grouped togather. you need a to work on it for a considerable period of time to get used to it. Gnome is faster at booting and faster when it works and it's more stable with Gnome based software like Evolution.
i guess that both KDE and Gnome are easy to use but personally i prefer Gnome over KDE
Didn't Vote here cause I keep going back to fluxbox
The machine I run linux on has a small hard drive and is a little slow, so fluxbox runs faster than gnome or kde (actually I hated the way gnome insisted on launching it's file browser each time I mounted a CD Rom, I wanted to use cli
to work with the CD Rom.)
Iīm voting for Gnome, just because I donīt like the KDE Look īnī Feel. But as soon as KDE has something comparable to GIMP Iīm the first who switches. I mean, we have two really big desktop environments, but still I -Gnome user- have to install QT because thereīs nothing like K3B for GTK+. And vice versa I think many KDE users feel the same about the lack of a "KIMP"
