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.

Here's an idea... why doesn't everyone simply put a single line in their sigs that says "I use XXX Windowmanager, and I'm not saying it again!", so that there never needs to be yet another one of these threads? I'm just about to edit my sigs...

Good idea, I like that.
Maybe we should make it a part of the user's details off to the side under Distro ?? Anyone like that as an idea ?
well that's what i was thinking about that (annoying, imvho) a/s/l thread in general. the profile is there (and already contains the info) so i couldn't see the point of it. however it has got almost 200 posts long, mainly by first time posters saying hello and masterc saying hello back to each of them
well that's the whole point. apart from the loser trolls, no one here likes microsoft. preaching to the converted baffles me. and i suppose going to the extreme, it's like some big in joke, with no one ever defending microsoft here, it just kinda seems a little childish (?) almost.
Quite! I believe that I have defended MS on a number of occasions! They make good mice (well, trackerballs - I've not used an MS mouse yet ) and, although it is over priced and has features that no-one will ever use, Office is good IMO. I prefer to use OOo simply because it works under Linux so I don't have to jump back and forth or get bogged down with Wine just to get an office suite to work! I think that I defended them in my 'Anti Microsoft' thread somewhere saying that if you had a software company that suddenly (!) found that its product is the most widely used software package ever, wouldn't you do the same?

Did someone say hello?
To stay on topic, I use Flux and KDE, depending on which user I am.

Now there's an admission of schizophrenia if ever I saw one! I understand what you mean, though, mate. I tend to use SF as 'gsewell' and KDE on the odd occasion that I'm 'thymox' but that's mainly because I'm very rarely thymox these days and I haven't been bothered to change from the default settings for him/me/whoever! I do, however, also sometimes have even worse schizophrenic tendencies, such as having a nice SF session running on tty7, and then installing a new WM and loading it up on tty8 as me! Hmm... I really ought to find my medication
