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.

Distribution: Debian Wheezy / BackTrack 5/ Linux Mint 17
Years ago, a friend of mine whom I've lost contact with was running Woody. He had these small "widgets" on his desktop that he installed with apt. They were small boxes that displayed info. One was date/time, one was processor usage, and another showed network traffic. Does anyone know what these are and where I can get more info on them? I would especially like the one showing network traffic.
Are you using KDE? If so, right click on the panel, go to Panel Menu->Add to panel->Applet, and look at the list of available applets. (I like Ksensors, but I've got heat problems, so I need to monitor CPU temp, fan speed, etc.)
I think GNOME has similar applet support, but it's been a while since I've done much with GNOME.
