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.

Is it possible to have the loghook from Xmonad show up in conky rather than the inverse of conky being piped into xmobar or dzen2? I have found that conky can be shaped and positioned like a panel and would rather use it alone with a loghook rather than xmobar or dzen2.
I have a sort of other xmonad related question as well or referring to tiling window managers in general. Is there a tiling window manager that supports UTF8 locales? As far as I know, I installed the utf8 string haskell package. Yet changing my locale to Esperanto kills Xmonad entirely.
Been looking at Window Manager From Scratch but found not so much locale support in it either.
I have noticed that the Esperanto locale works in XFCE4. I am quite happy with Xmonad, so perhaps I will see if they work together.
Actually that didnt work. So I have been trying the rumai ruby config for wmii. I am familiar with all of these window managers, but not Utf8 hacking them. Wmii shows some promise of Esperanto compatibility. Though currently getting display errors from the Ruby version that look like this:
'' is being used for nilclass. I am assuming that is the utf8 error, replacing a utf8 character with . I noticed  this character used in Xterm but not in Xfce4-terminal or "Terminal" as it is now called. The Xfce4-terminal has more unicode char support than plain xterm.
