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.

Hey, I was just wondering it was possible to incorporate the Gnome desktop environment switcher into KDE instead of using KDE's?
Why I want gnome's DS instead of KDE's:
1) Touch-Sensitive (Selecting Windows)
2) Window Transfers (Moving Windows from one desktop to another)
3) Desktop Organizing (You can have them in one row, or in 2 or 3 or however many you want... not just 2 rows)
4) It's just all-around better
Can anyone help me to make my KDE that much better by putting Gnome Desktop Switcher on my KDE taskbar?
I use KDE, and can do the things you mentioned with the default install. To switch a window from one desktop to another, you right click on the box at the bottom of the screen, and tell it to move it to any (or all) of the other desktops. I'm not sure what ytou mean by touch sensative - if you mean you can auto-select whatever window is under the cursor, that can be set in the KDE control panel. AS to the organizing you lose me there too - you can arrange the windows any way you like on every computer I've used oin the last 10+ years. reason 4 I can't comment on, if you like gnomethen by all means, go ahead and use it!

Not Gnome better - Gnome's Desktop Switcher - and by touch sensitive, I mean that you can click on any window in the view and it will bring it to the front, or you can click and DRAG it to ANY desktop, rather than having to locate the menu bar, or the taskbar icon for the window, right-click, and go >To Desktop>All Desktops | Desktop 1, Desktop 2....
