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 voted for xmonad, as it's the closest thing there is to a comfortable, tiling window manager.
StumpWM comes close, but I just wish it didn't force the need for a prefix key-sequence - I personally wish it behaved a little more like xmonad.
As far as other WMs I use go, I am also quite partial to CWM (on OpenBSD).
I haven't invested much time in finding the differences between any of these and so I stick with the default for ubuntu. Which I'm pretty sure is metacity. And I enable the effects which makes it fun If I'm wrong, oh well -- metacity gets an uninformed vote.
fluxbox gets the vote, but icewm is not far behind. (BTW icewm theme problems are now fixed)
Ahh I do see that they have some changes this year I will have to download it and compile it promptly. I really do hope the themes have been fixed I will have to test it and see if its working. I am actually surprised to see this out since there was no activity on the mailing list( I am currently subscribed). I know that I mentioned it so maybe someone saw that and did some work
Distribution: Linux Mint 8, Ubuntu Studio 9.10, DSL 4.1
Fluxbox & Metacity are ok. Compiz is pretty cool. But my vote goes to Enlightenment. By far, the most elegant & pretty window manager I've ever seen! The only downside is that it's a bit of a resource-hog which makes sense considering all it's doing & I can live with that.
