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.

I'll be thinking of you guys and gals when I upgrade to a stable Wheezy.
I got impatient and just upgraded to Wheezy. Everything looks good so far. One thing that does surprise me though is that I still have OpenOffice. I assumed it had been replaced by LibreOffice, but both are in Wheezy's package list. Interesting.
And the new screen at the beginning of the boot sequence is cool.

If I understand you correctly, you're talking about recent updates to some packages to packages for TESTING (currently called "wheezy"). Since TESTING has been frozen for a while, this means that recent packages contain only bug fixes and not new features. If you want to stay with STABLE and not track TESTING then be sure that your repos in your sources list file are labelled as "wheezy" or "stable" and not "testing"
My question was if a person is going to stick with "wheezy", of course they will change all lines to wheezy, but after the change willthey also have to enable "Proposed Updates". I myself will not be sticking with stable so it doesn't apply to me, but just a question.
Distribution: Debian Testing, Stable, Sid and Manjaro, Mageia 3, LMDE

You have to compile the panel plugins, orage and maybe some more yourself. I did that and have absolutely no problems with 4.10.
Also, thunar 1.6 is very much improved compared to 1.2, with tabbed support, now sees all attached devices/network mounts + it can do network bookmarking very easily. Pretty much everything that was missing feature wise is in there now.
I had the whole 4.10 on a "play" install. The new panel is neat but I don't need any functionality improvements over the 4.8 version so I haven't fooled with it on any other installs.
Thunar 1.6, on the other hand, I have on all testing and sid installs. It is just too great not to use.
