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
I would be interested in knowing if members prefer KDE3 to KDE4, rather than KDE as a stand alone category. There is a big difference in these two versions of KDE.
I second that.
I strongly prefer KDE 3 to KDE 4. I'm having a hard time voting for a DE because of this. I really rely on KDE 3's features for a lot of things, but just can't get by with KDE 4 and it's weird desktop icon support.
Would Enlightenment DR17 count as a desktop environment? I know there is no official release candidate, but it is still quite stable and seems to possess all of the internals of a desktop environment (the only out-of-the-box exception being a system tray).
While I am no fan or even user, I would say that the KDE people have had the most guts this year (apart from the strange 'oh-no-4.0-was-only-considered-a-testing-version' comments).
Looking forward to seeing Xfce 4.6 - bound to be interesting.
