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
Wonder how many people will complain about Enlightenment not being here again, this year, lol
I voted Kde again.
I actually did a lot of swapping around this year. I moved to a highbrid setup featuring the Mate setup with the Cinnamon effects, for about 3 and a half months, then i moved to Gnome shell for an equally amount of time. One crucial change i had to do to Gnome shell was change the hot corner behaviour. I changed it so it showed the applications menu by default instead of the open applications. Actually that took me ages to find an extension that did that, and once i did, it was deemed as a beta, but it worked nicely for me. I also changed the dash so it was always showing and i used that like a task manager.
I really like the look gtk3, and Gnome shell, so it was quite nice. Eventually, things just bugged me and i considered it an inconvenience to use it, so i switched back to my Mate/Cinnamon setup for about another month. It improved on the inconveniences i had with Gnome shell, but i now faced new annoyances.
I'm back using Kde, and other than the menu i am happiest with it. (I am aware of the other menus for Kde, but i don't like any, the classic menu seems to suite me best, but i would like to see it conform to the desktop theme a little instead of exclusively to the colour them)
Ever since the icon task manage was made available to Kde, i have been very very happy with kde, and it seems to be getting better. That is with the exception of Opensuse, for a distro that has a reputation for delivering one of the best kde experiences, i can not understand why they're persistent at removing the 'remaining time' feature in the battery monitor.
