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 haven't installed linux yet, I have a couple of books. One is fedora core 4 and the ubuntu. As soon as I get though some of these I will definitely load one and try it. This a great forum. I know nothing about linux, but I learn quick. I hate windozes. Any help on Cad programs would be great!
Here is a compiled list of card programs for linux. http://www.tech-edv.co.at/lunix/CADlinks.html Looks like a fairly long list of cad software. Let us know which one you choose if you do go with a Linux native. That way anyone searching will see your results and success.
Yes f 10 is out but I think only in beta form. And for animation you will want to look into blender 3d. That is used for creating 3d animation. They do have one animated video called elephants dream. Pretty good actually.
I do realize there is a Fedora Core 10, but the Fedora Core 4 book and disk was free. Sometimes starting with an earlier version helps me understand how some of the later version are developed.
Depends on what is used. Gnome applications mostly rely on the gtk+ framework while I think kde mostly relies on the qt framework. So it depends on which framework it uses. But they should still be able to run under gnome or kde.
It is that mostly people don't want the extra stuff to be installed so they will look for applications that use a specific framework.
