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.

Tried many others but speed, functionality and configurability of flux won me over.
I run GRML (about the most underrated and fun to use distro on the planet) and the default implementation of fluxbox is awesome. I can do what I want to do and get where I want to go faster with fluxbox than anything else.
Uh oh, only 60 votes for Window Maker? That's my choice. Like someone said, everything I need and nothing I don't. Easily configurable. Plus it starts super fast. As a OS X user it feels more natural than start-menu clonehorrors, too. Gotta love docking apps! All commonly used programs behind one mouse click, not so often used behind 3-4 and rest can be opened from terminal and then docked at will without any commands.
I plain love it!
Long live NeXT-alikes (although he who has designed Afterstep has been on heavy acid)!
Well, the first linux distribution i used was SUSE 10.0. My computer was quite weak (Celeron 667, 256MB RAM). At first i used KDE, the default one, and it was super slow. Then i later learned about "the many WMs and DEs" in Linux, so i switched to WindowMaker, which was available on my machine. I liked it. But then i later read on the forums that BlackBox was by far the lightest among those WMs, so i switched to Blackbox. First i was not very impressed, but after visiting freshmeat.net and getting some cool themes, i made my computer look awesome!
So, to me, Blackbox has been the best WM so far. I recently switched to some less bloated Linux distros like Slackware, Gentoo, and found out it didnt make much different if i used Fluxbox. Now Im using FreeBSD, which is the fastest OS i've ever seen, and i mainly use Fluxbox.
But by and large, i choose Blackbox, and i voted for it.
Please dont mind if my post doesnt make sense, haha
Yet again, is Window Maker developement halted? It has been 0.92 forever! I got the sources secured but all I can program is a bit BASIC on my TI83. That WM has tremendous potential, it just needs a glossy facelift to appeal to masses and more versatile Dock (as in hidable & adjustable to bottom/up).
