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.

I was just minding my own business when kate (the text editor, of course) locked up. How do I kill her -er- it? I know how to kill stuff in the terminal (ctrl+z), but I can't figure it out for KDE. It seems like this would be one of the first things they'd tell you in the Linux books, but nooooo.
Thanks, guys. The ctrl+alt+esc method didn't work, so I assume that's a special feature of whatever wm you use. The xkill method works, but when I set an icon to run xkill, it acts like it's trying to start a program and leaves me with a flashing icon next to the cursor and a bar called "kill" in the panel.
On another note, why would someone who hates Windows so much do his website in a Windows XP theme?

That's what you get if using an icon to start xkill, just select the app you want to kill with the cursor
