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.

If I didn't have wmii, I would use scrotwm. And if neither of those two were around, I'd probably end up on dwm.
If ratpoison's keybindings weren't so emacs-like (all the multi key patterns) I probably would have liked that as well. I tried musca, but I like the more dynamic wm's. I never was able to get awesome working nicely but perhaps that's the curse of using slackware and being a bit of a slacker myself. Either way, I'm in heaven with wmii.
Can configure it in bash, python, or ruby (might be a fourth language I'm forgetting), plus it's fun to screw around with wmiir which gives you access to the plan9 dependencies.
Fell in love when an OpenBSD friend introduced it to me. I'd been a long time Dwm user before that, with some xMonad on the side, but ScrotWM was just so elegantly coded (study the source files and you'll understand) and more importantly, it was blindingly fast. Possibly the fastest tiler I've used (can't wait for Marco to switch it to XCB), though mostly only noticeable on underpowered hardware. Love the xMonad-esque keybindings and sane defaults. Imho, it feels like a dwm-improved + xMonad lite rolled into one.
Similar to my previous scrot, just with more saturated colours and slightly tweaked Vim colorscheme to match;
Basically grabbed a colour close to the red/pink Debian uses for it's swirl logo, and worked the other colours around that.
