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.

"remove Ubuntu from the distros you recommend or redistribute." Ubuntu is still the most popular Linux distribution. While we suspect most "regular" users of Ubuntu will be satisfied with the on/off toggle for the online search results, there may well be a significant number who flee for an alternative distribution.
Only one I occassionaly use is SpaceFM. Yet hard to give it "of the year" when maintainer has abondoned both it and Linux over the SystemD debacle. But, as it is the _only_ one I use even occassionally ....
Meh, I guess I should really weigh in with a "Just use Emacs" here. Dired for the win
Meh, I don't really know what to say for this one.
I voted for Konqueror since it's the only one that's of use to me AT ALL, since it works (rather poorly, but it works) with libmtp to let me access files on my Samsung Android smartphone. Don't get me started on how ridiculous it is that I can't easily use LINUX to mount a LINUX-based Android device as a standard mass storage device, but I digress (as is my wont).
But for 99% of file management tasks, I use the shell, which is the best file manager of all IMHO.
It is a clone of the famous NC for Linux, Mac and Windows.
It is quite similar to NC and has got more features, mostly for creating pdf, merging pdfs, files,... It features tabs. It encrypts files, uses md5,enc,... There are cncview and cncedit, which are included in the box as well. There is a great number of settings, so that you can customize with the menu the scheme, displayed information, columns,... in the way you like.
