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.

I've tried all 3 debian live images, ubuntu 12.04 & 13.04, mint debian and regular mint. I get odd little errors in all of them.
Both mint have icons disappear randomly. ubuntu 12.04 is very slow, ubuntu 13.04 is so stuttery it's completely un-usable. Gnome debian doesn't load the background wallpaper all the time, if it makes it past the login to begin with. KDE debian has a couple issues I don't like (asked about in another post) so I havn't messed with it much. XFCE debian is the only one that seems to work perfectly out of everything but I'm not a fan of XFCE. All md5 hashes confirmed and verified.
Is there a certain way I need to set up each VM in virtual box or are these type of things just the way it is right now. Was hoping linux had advanced from when I last tried it a few years ago. All these little glitches and such though on nearly every distro I've tried I'm hoping this is due to bad vm setup and not normal issues with linux itself.
I'd really like to change over to linux but if this stuff is normal I'm not in to fight it the whole way.
AMD Phenom II x6 1055t 2.8ghz

Don't remember motherboard model.
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Virtualization is enabled in the bios.
*edit* not sure this is correct forum, couldn't find a better place.
Unfortunately this is with guest additions installed. First thing I do after booting the vm. In debian's case they come with them pre-installed but I update them to the most current with the latest virtual box edition.
