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.

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.

Is there a function similir to the one in Windows XP that shows the desktop? As of now and many times I have around 10 tasks open and I want to minimize them all quickly to reach my desktop, of corse it would make sense that this shortcut be on my taskbar somewhere... how can I do this?

KDE and GNOME have this. On GNOME its enabled by default on most distros, just check on the bottom panel. On KDE you can add it by right clicking on a free space on kicker, click add to panel -> special button -> desktop access. I think XFCE has it as well, but I have not used it for a couple of weeks so can't confirm this.

When I come to think of it, I have missed that feature, and most of all the Win+R = Run command line. Luckily it's an easy fix, at least in GNOME. The keyboard shortcuts control panel have all the necessary settings.
