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.

For a normal desktopuse I do have already what I want.
Ofcourse I would prefer some changes.
It should be modular like SLAX, small and easy to use and stable like Puppy, but it should be multilingual so it would exist also in German and Italian.
Every distribution offers also programs I don't need.
But the things to start with most used are the Internet.
Seamonkey I like (it includes html-editor and mail-client).
There should be skype and wordprozessing (Abiword) gostview to see the pdf and flash-plugin. A radio similary to screamer in Windows and a mediaplayer (VLC) would make it perfect for me.
Then there should be a multimedia-module to include a pendent to AnyDVD, CloneDVD (DVD-Shrink).
I think then it is complete for private desktopuse.
it's already there. A distro isn't going to restructure ALL applications like that though, that's not going to happen.
That's not going to happen?
If you mean that no one is going to rip up the Unix-y file hierarchy and replace it with something less, err, arcane or baroque, you should look here: http://lwn.net/Articles/67196/
because someone (gobolinux) already has. OTOH, if you mean that they are not going to replace the interestingly featured Unixy hierarchy and separators with a windows-alike one, I would hope that you are correct.
And as that article was from '04, you might be wondering why Gobolinux is taking quite this long to take the world by storm.
