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.

ok, I have recently switched back from gnome to kde since kde4 appears to me as the lesser evil compared to gnome3 though gnome is usually better supported in debian.
I have tried a lot of desktops over the years, from enlightenment over fluxbox to xfce, but have always come back to one of the "bloated" desktops, because there's always something missing that hinders a good workflow. Though not fancy, here's a screenshot.
Right now i'm not using it but when i am it's Debian + Fluxbox or LXDE(saves pain from downloading big DE also from netinstall) and to be honest there is nothing you can't "fix" from there(to be same like in bloated) using Synaptic, software center(same like ubuntu without ubuntu word) or apt-get-install (terminal) or web browser downloads+guides.
Wheezy + kde from experimental w/ iceweasel from experimental.
I also almost always use a "bloated" DE. I'm not a fan of any of the WM's, don't like XFCE, and don't like Gnome. I do like LXDE some, but not enough to switch over to it. But none of my machines have an issue with running it and running it well, so I don't mind.
My sisters machine has LXDE on Debian wheezy though. It's old enough that KDE wasn't smooth.
Thought i'd say, i find it interesting that Debians default desktop environment is gnome, but there's yet to be a gnome participant.
Here's mine!, Debian Squeeze stable: default kde 4.4.5: Backports 2.6.39 kernel.
