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.

hi this is sree im a user of windows who shifted to linux platform,im using fedora 8.0,but it is very slow when compared to KDE environment slower than
microsoft vista.Please if anybody have the same experience please sahare his experience.
Slow to redraw the applications and windows OR slow to open a given program OR .... Try to be a bit more specific. Some problems might have an easy solution once you know what the exact problem is. KDE vs. Gnome is just a matter of taste as someone else said. There's no significant performance different in one or another per sé, though they can perform much better or much worse than the other depending on how you configure them.
I have a laptop with XP and SuSE and XP is clearly slower and Vista is clearly slower than than XP.
I suspect that you have something misconfigured (or sub-optimally configured - you can argue that most distros don't give you the fastest config by default) on the Fedora side OR you have failed to understand what some of the startup processes are doing for you and you are comparing while, eg, updatedb is running.
