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.

True. But I do work on several things. Sometimes I even do them at once. I would like to have seperate icons for writing on one desktop, web design on another, Linux related on a third, personal/games on the fourth, etc... This way it keeps things in order and not to cluttered. I hate desktops that have so many icons it takes an hour to find what you need. If not icons then maybe customizable task bars for each desktop. Something. I hate the idea of having to log out/switch user each time to access different accounts I have set up for different things. Again it can all be on the same desktop, but I like things a little more neater and in order. Yes I can also have different folders for each one, and I do. But it seems it ouwld be more convient with seperate icons. As far as being to bloated. There are many excellent desktops. XFCE, fluxbox, to name a couple, and so on that are far from being bloated. If one doesn't like the direction KDE or anything else is going in then they can switch to another desktop enviroment. That is the great thing about Linux, Choices and Options.
