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 really only used Fluxbox for a while. Tried Blackbox and Openbox, but didn't like them as much. I didn't have any problems in Fluxbox. I could still use cool KDE apps like K3b and Kopete (though I use Gaim now.) I could even use Konqueror as my file manager. I think I might have had problems with SuperKaramba, but I can't remember. It's been a while since I've used Fluxbox. I use Enlightenment now.
Just give it a whirl and see how it works for you You've got nothing to lose!
Originally posted by phsythax i agree, the theme coler and wallpaper aint the best i ever seen too.
just woundering, how do you manuver and start apps on a desktop like that you posted?
right clicking for a menu?
yes, it's just basic fluxbox. everything is in the right-click menu or just launch it from a terminal. and you can maneuver with keystrokes or the pager in the right corner to get to different desktops.
Originally posted by jmr71769 It looks like it *could* be Blackbox. Black/Flux/Openbox, all pretty sweet.
All kids of distros have nice window managers. The choice, is yours - and that's the beauty of Open Source.

and about open source, i agree 100 %
