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.

There has been plenty of hype from the government about conservatives and how they equate conservatism with Christianity. They claim to go to church often, but that doesn't mean they're Christian. They claim to do good deeds (while sinning in other areas), but that doesn't mean they're Christian. They call themselves "Christians", but the way they act they are beginning to agitate me. Why?

After switching to KDE4 I was little confused with its new philosophy of Plasma containers and activities. As it looked interesting, I tried to find more information. Now, there are some nice posts showing how to use it, but I couldn't find the answer for a simple question: where the information about desktop icons is stored on a disk?
Just for the record, in KDE 4.4.5 it is in '~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc'
