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
This is a difficult one. I love Gnome 2. I intensely dislike the Unity and Gnome 3 desktops. Between Unity and Gnome 3 I think Gnome 3 is slightly better. KDE is not too bad, prefer Gnome 2 though. I have chosen Gnome Shell. If Gnome 2 had been in the list I would have it.
I agree. Someone suggested MATE represents Gnome 2. Jeremy, could you weigh in on this? I don't want to vote for Gnome 3 by mistake. I'd almost rather use Windoze than Gnome 3 or Unity.
Most difficult poll here. All the main contenders have significant drawbacks in my mind. KDE4 is finally usable, and has loads of nice features, but there's still something vaguely annoying about using it. Unity is crapola, Gnome 3 has potential I think but it's still in it's infancy. Xfce is nice enough but there's been no noticable improvement recently compared to KDE, so I suppose my vote has to be KDE.
I hope some of the smaller/newer DE's will pick up the slack this year though.
