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.

Just because KDE is a memory hog; xine can't play anything; and repeated posts aren't worth your effort, doesn't mean they all suck. It just means that some people:
1. Don't know anything else exists;
2. Can't figure out that command line works better;
3. Can't see the search button located in the upper right hand corner of the screen, or think that their idea is new.
No actually I think a lot of people use KDE because it's easier than learning something else, and it works very well. Not because they are stuck in winbloze mentality, or because they are in la la land believing they are still using winbloze. KDE is built to enable ease of use, but still give the stability of using Linux. It's definitely 50x better than winbloze default GUI (oh wait, there is no other option).
The reason I asked about other Desktop Environments is because alot of other KDE things will work in Gnome and vice versa so I was wondering if this was also one. But this would probably be tied to kicker, so you could probably use it, but you'd need kicker running as well. No?
