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
I'm going to have to go with Unity. I've personally avoided it like the plague for a while, but I decided to give it a fair shot when Ubuntu 12.04 came. Now I'm back on Arch Linux and the FIRST thing I did was install Unity. My workflow has become so much smoother. But, to each their own.
I think Unity would be pretty neat if it had a better menu layout and (especially) didn't rely on Compiz. The latter causes it to take up to 30 seconds on decent hardware just to open the menu, and crashes regularly to boot! (This is on multiple machines.) I love what Canonical is trying to do with Unity (if not some the specifics), but it's just not usable for me. Were it less reliant on that buggy compositing manager, it might have a real chance at "unifying" desktop development.
Distribution: Mint KDE, Kubuntu Active, Damn Small Linux, Android
KDE, KDE Plasma Active, & Trinity DE
I use KDE on anything I can. Desktop PC,& laptop. I use KDE Plasma Active on my touch screen tablet. On really old computers, like early Athlon & Pentium 3/4, I use Trinity Desktop Environment (the fork on KDE 3). www.freegeekseattle.org
So are hurricanes, nukes, and overdosing celebrities The expression "no news is good news" comes to mind. I'm just poking fun. I have nothing against you even if you can't recognize the best DE ever: KDE!!!
