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.

Because people feel the need to be inidated in complexity and problems. If there system isn't crashing every five minutes, something is wrong (esspecially if it doesn't look like a Microsoft product). So therefor we have Gnome and KDE to thank for that.
actually i was using XFce but my LFS I am trying to find the time to restart as its just blank partitions, trying to totally customize this time on my LFS, creating the partitions instead of using one large partition to start out with. until I start it up again hopefully tomorrow on my day off.. but most likely I will use XFce again and probably GNOME..
I use WindowMaker, and in my opinion the only thing that beats that is black box. I would use BB all the time, cept I don't have the time to set it all up how I would like. It's much easier to setup WM.
The fact that you can just click on the desktop to get a menu is nice, rather than always heading off with the mouse to get to the 'start' menu. Who needs to waste screen space with a task bar?
