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 Rex and i want to know that which is better to install kubuntu or xubuntu as i have intel core2duo with 4 GB RAm , 320 GB HDD , 1GB nvidia 9500GT Graphics card . Also it is better to install it separately or with window 7 as i have it now and also which is the easier way to install it . Thank u.
Actually it is all a matter of preference. I preferred xubuntu because I liked the Xfce environment more than KDE. Xubuntu is designed for lower systems and uses less resources (mainly because it doesn't have KDE).
You have a good system, so if you want something that looks good and is pretty easy to use, go with Kubuntu.
I use Xubuntu, since I like the XFCE environment more.
Here's a nice thing for you, you can install Xubuntu and switch to Ubuntu, Kubuntu or any such with ease. You don't have to re-install, only the environment can be re-installed. Have a look here, you'll see that you can use any of the previous mentioned and just switch to some other environment with ease.
You have enough space to install all 3 systems on your PC. This way you can run Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Lubuntu in parallel for some time, and then decide which one fits better your taste.
And, of course, install Windows first.
