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.

last time I used it (probably a year) it was buggy, and often died. I was looking for somethign like blackbox at the time, and I found fluxbox, and haven't moved on since. at the time, fluxbox had a much better code base, and the cool tab things that you either can't live without or hate...
I've used it a couple of times, and I think it has some, erm, very interesting features. Like the extremely large desktop, for starters. I don't know about the rest of you, but I find it easier to have multiple desktops and spread my applications around rather than have large desktops. I know that waimea has multiple desktops, but I just don't get on with the super-sized desktop... 1600x1200 is big enough as it is! Other than that, it felt a bit like any other... I won't be using it in place of my SawFish just yet, though.
I have used it quite frequently, and it is great ( still second to openbox in my book tho)
The 'Large Desktop' is pretty cool. I have mine set so it takes a second to switch desktops when you move your mouse to the side. It is almost like resistance to switching desktops. You can also assign desktops to keys , or set your mouse to wheel through them (like flux). You can set it up any way you want, really.
Tons of other things are just as configurable.
