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 see that lots of people run after bleeding edge SW. I can see that Ubuntu release takes most recent packages only few weeks after they had been released.
I remember I've taken testing CD set and there was Gnome 2.6 after few weeks I wanted to add some CDs and had to download later CDs - and so I had to upgrade to Gnome 2.8... And I've asked myself - what is the difference!!!!!! I allmost can't find?
Why do you prefere to take a risk and upgrade versions to latest version when you have stable working system... What do you gain?
Is it reasonable to take 2.10 Gnome and KDE 3.4 when they are not stable enough? Even desktop system have to work smoothly.

Thats the fun of running Sid. I find with apt-listbugs I have very few issues. The only problem I have run into so far was trying to use Enlightenment for some reason it doesn't like me. Gnome and KDE both work fine. I am one of those people that installs and uninstalls packages on an almost daily basis.
I've yet to see a real problem with SID. It showed a few error messages for something I didn't use anyway and everything still worked. And yes I was using it before the package freeze for sarge. Don't use apt listbugs. It's not as unstable as most people think it is.
