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 use XFWM. I just went to using XFCE as my go to desktop environment this year after KDE3 was starting to not be provided as an option in so many distros. I discovered a lot of themes at xfce-look.org, and even found it pretty easy to create my own XFWM theme. Check it out: Pewterburg-Gold.
As I discovered more about the window manager, I found out that only recently it has the capabilities of prelight effects for the buttons, but I really like it's versatility.
XFWM bumped since KDE4 ditched konqueror, so they get my vote this year
XFCE team! stay cool
Since I note from elsewhere that you're a fan of "rolling your own" you may want to check out OpenBOX, wh/is an awesome fast and lightweight window manager if you're willing to spend the time tweaking it to your personal tastes. I'm lazy in my old age and just go with the convenience of default Gnome these days, but back in the day when I was more into such things my OpenBOX set up was my fave ever. That was just one lean, mean, and clean desktop that did everything just the way I wanted it to w/o getting in the way. Oh, and just for reference, it replaced Fluxbox, wh/in had in turn replaced Blackbox.... Which probably goes some ways towards explaining why I am so opinionated about the idiocy that some of the HIG fascists have enforced upon us....
