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.

+1 to Dolphin. I use it all the time, especially in gnome. Why? i like the little plus symbols for highlighting files when they're not all in a nice neat square. I also like how when you drag and drop a file in Dolphin, you get the option to, copy, move, or create a symlink. Konqueror also has these features and i personally like it better as a file manager, but i think konqueror as a web browser is horrible, and as a gnome user, i'd rather bring in just a file manager then, a swis army knife file manger web browser combo. And for these reason, i use Dolphin.
A additional note that's just come to mind, i also like how Dolphin doesn't try to take over the desktop in xfce, like bloody Nautilus does. I hate Nautilus.
Nautilus and it's forks are excellent, so is Dolphin. But I need a icon based fm with instant access to command line where I can see output on stdout/stderr. And I need a fm which actually uses the extra cores on my box for something useful. And I don't need extra crap on my fm apart from icons (like bookmarks, menus, trees and the like): I want to be distracted the least from my work, which is darn more important. And I never want to be treated like a moron: if I want bookmarks, I will define them, I do not need a filemanager to create bookmarks and directories and tell me tha't where I should keep my "videos", "music" or whatever.
That's why I use Rodent.
Granted, Rodent is still missing things like transparent access to mobile phones, ftp servers, ssh/sftp hosts and smb servers, but that stuff is in the oven and will soon be available to the general public.
I do like Thunar, if i'm not using Dolphin, it'll be Thunar. I've never looked into the the Thunar extensions. I should, and if i'm happy, maybe i can replace Dolphin and have a more native file manager to my gtk environment.
