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.

View Poll Results: Which New Desktop GUI do you prefer best?
Try them both, see what you like best.
They are both easy to use, both powerfull, both flexable etc...
Sometimes kde runs faster then gnome on a box or vice versa, but you'll have to try them both to find out .
Well, not to start a preference war or anything, but as a relative newbie I like kde 3.1 (although i have had one problem with it starting today). I like the interface a little bit better, and some of the included items in kde. It seems a little more versatile to me from what I've seen. I really like the konqueror browser, and it handles anti-aliasing so much better than mozilla. From what others have said, konqueror is also faster.
downside - kde has been reported to be slower than gnome, but you can always change that by reducing the gui effects.
I only use gnome when I have a problem in kde (which may say something about gnome's relability, but i also don't mess with gnome).
I guess the best advice is to just try them out and see what you like. It's a matter of preference.
