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.

The first desktop i used was KDE. I liked the way everything worked ( well it's a start =] ). But since using ubuntu, i've always preferred gnome. The interface is simple and, you don't (at the moment anyhow) have to goto application and control panels (which i find is to F***ing windows like!).
So anyhow, recently I was reading about KDE 4, and was actually so impressed, i started to get intreased in doing some development for it. So I then thought i would have another look at KDE. So in the normal debain manner ( apt-get install kubuntu-desktop =] ) i installed kde, only to found that it actually fan faster =S. I was actually disappointed, because i want the fastest desktop, but i like gnome.
So... ( apt-get install xubuntu-desktop )....
... OMFG! What the F*** have they done to xfce?! :O
The first time i used xfce was back when slackware 10.1 came out. xubuntu is completely different, i really couldn't be bothered to figure it out so in the end: i was soo annoyed i couldn't find the perfect desktop! However, in the end i found the perfect answer!
4 reasons I use and voted for GNOME:
1. It is the default For Fedora (Gnome with Bluecurve)
2. Gnome looks less like windows
3. I like Konqueror but prefer Nautilus
4. I was introduced to Linux with Gnome
I have both KDE and Gnome installed on my Computer, so I can use KDE programs while in GNOME
Besides, it is very easy to add KDE to classic Ubuntu as well.
Yup, I added KDE to classic Ubuntu in under ten minutes. I love it. It's brilliant. Although it'll take a bit of getting used to, due to the fact I've been using GNOME from the first time I used Linux.
