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 am using gnome 2.8 on Debian Sarge. I like it because most programs I use are designed for gnome. I have to say KDE 3.5 introduced some vary good features to make things easer for new users coming from the nightmare that is Windows.
I've always used KDE but having got hold of a copy of SLED 10 which defaults to Gnome I have to say I really like the SLAB menu. Since then I've installed SUSE 10.2 however the new KDE menu is quite nice, but still not as good as Gnome in SLED
Gnome seems to work best for me
I've tried KDE and while there is nothing wrong with it I'm more comfortable on a gnome desktop
gnome does seem to be able to handle more
I've broken KDE but haven't broken gnome yet
I'm no power user I'm just trying to get my hardware to work
KDE is what I would install my kids computer it works it's pretty and lots of apps but if your looking to control your system more I've hade better luck with gnome
sorry to be long winded
