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 would say not much difference. Some say gnome is quicker, some say kde is. Just one of those questions that the correct answer is what you yourself likes. Both are considered bloated gui interfaces compared to many other light window makers.
I also use arch. It's fast because it is optimize for i686 and above and the pacman file manager is great, it handles dependencies, it checks for software conflicts and it installs applications quickly.
Yeah. I find that it is pretty quick, and also quite configurable. Kdemod is great too. My one problem is that I have had to compile some packages myself, like mt-daapd and axel, but this is easy using the makepkg system, and some quickly put together PKGBUILDS.
I'm using arch current as my server distro for web and openfire. Seems perfect for what we have on this. Only around 250 people on the network, so never a heavy load. I'd like to see how it would hold up in more commercial sites though.
