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.

Can't make up my mind between KDE and gnome. For now I decided to run gnome on a 64 bit machine, but use KDE on a PC that's more for playing music, browsing around and tinkering. I love the straight-forwardness and simplicity of gnome, but I also like all these pretty configuration methods for KDE, such as, alt-keys that work only for certain applications, e.g., issuing a command to alsa player to play the next piece of music, skip one or play it again; all while reading something or editing text. Scrolling between virtual desktops... KDE is the perfect trap for procrastinators: Once you get into setting up all the sleek features, you can't stop improving the desktop and never get any work done. gnome on the other hand: No, you won't have 6 different backgrounds for each virtual desktop, and no, there aren't any more super fancy screen savers. You'll have to choose between a few barren things but you get your work done.
GNOME. That double coat of wax they put on it for FC6 really makes it shine!
If a team were to take a *box wm and really give it the "Swan" makeover in looks and configuration, it could certainly be another contender, although such a move seems to be counter to what most *boxes are about.
GNOME and GNOME only,whenever i look on someone's kde crap,guaajsh,....i vomits on it!as is the case with qt crap also.GNOME and GTK2 way to go!
the ghost of windows ui is living on the users of kde ::
