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.

Desktop Environements(gnome, kde...) and Window managers(IceWM, WindowMaker...) aren't the same thing, WM just handle windows, while DE provide more stuffs, like File managers(konqueror, nautilus...) among other things.

I was about to add the same thing after I added Blackbox, but since I can't edit the title, we can just pretend he said, "What Desktop/Window Manager do you use?"
you know, this has been asked so so so so so many times, did you try searching?
Yes, i did try searching but i wanted to be able to see the results in a summarized graphical poll form, instead of having to read through 100's of posts.
Maybe a poll has been taken already? If so, i apologize.
KDE on my primary machines, and IceWM on my slower machines. I love all the eyecandy and functionality of KDE, but there's just something special about watching IceWM boot up in under 5 seconds on my old K6-2 350.

I use SawFish as my main WM, but I am in the process of setting up an account called music that will run a remarkably large xmms on the TV (when I get around to sorting out my X config) with no WM - just plain ol' X.
Oh, and I'm in the process of setting up my other machine with IceWM and fbdesk to look and behave as much like Windows as I can (for my parents to play with).
Originally posted by moses So, will you add the OpenLook Virtual Window Manager (olvwm) to the poll if I also protest the lack of my favorite window manager?
Soon, maybe we'll have 36000 choices in the poll!
(sorry, just feeling like a smart alec tonight).
Unfortunately I would but the poll limits it to just 10 choices.. bummer really, as there are so many choices to choose and use.
