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
And where is Unity? (I also checked Window managers and couldn't find it)
If no Unity, I vote GNOME. GNOME is consistently provides a stable, reliable & easily usable DE. There isn't any DE like it. However LXDE is getter better all the time and I could see my self maybe voting for it next year.
The end result being that although in the past I've been a big proponent of Xfce and Gnome detractor, the past couple years I've been using Gnome as my daily driver. Else LXDE when I'm on legacy hardware. LXDE deserves the nod because they've made such advances, but also feel like I should vote Gnome since I use it the most, so I guess I'm going to have to ponder this one a bit more.
Oh yeah, if you don't like Metacity you may want to consider replacing it with OpenBox. OpenBox is very lightweight wm and a nice drop in replacement on Gnome.
