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.

I like to keep my system as beautiful as possible. KDE was really awesome. I tried gnome also. it's like just an old movie. I know that, we can get good looks for gnome also. but it is waste of time. by default KDE giving nice features.

What an intelligent comment. It implies that you do not posses the ability to change a default theme. Or, conversely, you are weaker than average people, been unable to confront a simple and easy desktop theme. Very sad for a public confession...
I used to prefer to use KDE (I grew up with a lot of "KDE" distros...Mandrake, Mandriva, dabbled in PCLinuxOS, when I installed Gentoo, I got KDE)...but when I got into Linux Mint, I really got into gnome.
And when KDE 4 came out, I anticipated liking the look and feel, but it didn't seem very usable. I have no doubt that I didn't spend enough time with it, but it was such a chore.
I like xfce a bit too, but for some reason I've never mainly used it.
Distribution: Solaris 9 & 10, Mac OS X, Ubuntu Server
How about none? Does none work for you?
I typically install minimal systems with no GUI components at all, and I really don't like installing or activating web management interfaces either. CLI is sufficient for all my Linux/BSD/Unix boxes. But, then, my desktop is a Mac. One GUI to rule them all.
