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.

LOL, I guess I took "home made wallpaper" too seriously.
it was easy and I dont even know how to use it?
I barely know how to use GIMP, too, but I know enough to do simple little hackjobs like this. *braces for impact from major public embarassment *
As clean as that may seem at first glance, there are three flaws: 1) the rays' extensions have no antialiasing (), 2) the squirrel's tail is cut off (couldn't be helped...it was a crop, and the original image didn't include his whole tail ), and 3) one of the rays overlaps his tail (didn't want to brush around it and make that part of the image look ugly ).
(For those wondering about the "rendered with linux :D" thing, take a look here; read towards the bottom of the section. )
It's not easy using blender, I've tried learning it, but I don't think I can do it. The problem is that they put way too many tabs in there, way too many options. It's way too complicated, the only way people can learn such things is to keep using them that way they memorize where the various obscure options are.
I much prefer inkscape, you can make cool things with it, and much easier that GIMP or blender.
As for wallpaper, I prefer landscapes (real ones, not fake). Outside I can see only ugly houses ... at least on my monitor there is something better.
Just thought I'd post a screenie of my new Arch install on my ex-Ubuntu machine.
It's exactly the same as my lappy's, save for the window border colors, Terminal background, and desktop background.
EDIT: This is with Compiz enabled. Compiz is strictly optional on this machine, and it normally defaults to xfwm4 compositing instead of hardware. It also boots to runlevel 3 by default and has no GUI login manager, so even X is optional.
