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.

Well... Desktop as in "my notebook over the desktop" or as in "desktop environment"... Such an usual term to refer a lot of weird uses.
In my very personal opinion there's a strange curve where "complexity" joins "usability". There's where I can't think of something equaling Gentoo. I've got this thing so tight in my machine that neither the pre-installed Windows MC (which warranty I broke 30 minutes since the first boot) can beat. Gentoo is the soul of my beloved computer.
Slackware is still my favorite. I have tried Ubuntu, SuSe, and Gentoo. I can get Slackware to work on more machines with fewer problems than these.
This is true,
Slackware parovides tools and stands out of Your way.
Other distro's 'try' to 'help' and most of time fail miserably.
Where the other distros, however succeed to help, Slackware comes preconfigured for.
I was in a rush for Bluetooth, so I 1st looked at google.
Once all done, I saw I could red it all in the /etc/rc.d/*.conf file
Same for compiz (dot a single download needed just a simple command line)
Same for everi thing.
And on slackware all packagesinclude devel by default
