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.

Imagine that the lines on the worldmap represent nuclear missile trajectories.
There's a shirt with such an image and that sentence somewhere on thinkgeek.com or a similar site I think.
And just to advertise a fantastic game related to this: DEFCON
Runs on GNU/Linux (altough I'm having some graphical bugs with it on my PC in the demo version).
How do you remove the window decorations??
It looks really cool!
And everyone here seems to have monitoring tools on the background image. Is this done with gdesklets?
Everytime I see the screenshots here, I am amazed. This just looks so much better than any other OS! And that's without compiz effects!
My ubuntu gnome desktop still looks very poor. I'll have to do something about that...
[KIA]aze: take a look at your $HOME/.fluxbox/keys file
Mod4 Q :ToggleDecor
for example allows me to toggle on/off the decoration of any window by simple pressing WINDOW-key + q
...Interesting error message by the way...do you get that often or was that a one time deal? Just curious.
Nah - It was a one time deal so far. I had my friend connct to me via VNC, so he could watch the connection appear - and for some reason the image didn't draw all the way. about 45% then it glitched, and the rest of the image was gray, and that error was thrown. Only done it once though, so I figured it had to do something with the VNC connecting while the image was being drawn (idk).
