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.

View Poll Results: Desktop Environment of the Year
Xfce got my vote. As DE come and go, it's fast and light and I really like that. When I use a DE that's what I use (though normally I use Fluxbox). My second choice would be KDE, which I ended up installing when I needed a 64-bit browser with java. With Konqueror installed, it's a small step to KDE-core. Also, there are some KDE killer appz such as Amarok and K3b and I use them all the time (in fluxbox). I ditched Gnome when I started using dual monitor setup with a projector as my second screen. The non-configurable behavior of metacity makes Gnome pretty much useless if you have a projector or TV as your second screen (unless you want it turned on when your using the computer for something else than watching movies).
it really does disappoint me that E17 isn't on there, it is one of the best environments out there considering what it can do at half the bloat as all the other choices, especially when its still in alpha/beta << not sure which now?
I believe that Enlightenment is listed in the window managers poll. I find an odd distinction with Enlightenment - those who use it refer to it as a desktop environment, and those who do not refer to it as a window manager. I wonder which is more correct?
