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.

View Poll Results: Which desktop environment do you use?
I like fluxbox as I tend to use both gtk2 gnome and kde apps and I find it makes for a more consistent and simple desktop. The one feature that I like the most about fluxbox is enabling the mouse scroll wheel to swtich between workspaces. VERY handy and fast!
I have to say that both the Gnome and Kde desktops are brilliant and its amazing that they are freely distributable. Of the two I prefer Gnome as its more MacOS like.
just installed it on my LFS system and i simply love it. its light-weight and there's so much to learn and to make it asthetically more apealing and functionally more accurate. its more of a learning experience with fluxbox.
before that i used kde. i am a big fan of that too. personally i dont like gnome... simply because it looks so much like windows (and finding things were a bit frustrating there)... may be i am wrong.... thats only my view. no hard feelings gnome fans..
