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.

Nice to see OpenBOX gaining some attention. I guess my promoting it year after year on these polls is starting to have some effect. lol. Seriously, I think LXDE choosing it as bundled WM has probably exposed a lot of folks to it.
I've actually left the KDE 4 camp and therefore kwin. I was a die hard KDE fan. But the bugs have gotten to me.
I switched to XFCE and thus xfwm4 for a while. That was an improvement.
Then I saw the poll on Fluxbox. I tried out all of Slackware's window managers. Fluxbox was really good. And fast. Login and *BOOM* your desktop is ready. And it's stable and bug free. I'm turning my back on Desktop Environments in general. A simple window manager is enough.
Learning to tweak Fluxbox is well worth the time investment of a few days. I'm totally converted now. I can't see what I ever saw in full desktop environments now.
