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 Is Your Favorite Desktop Environment?
My favorite Desktop Environment is KDE. I think it's the best piece of software ever made and now, when KDE 4.2 is coming out I'm even more excited..
At one point, long ago, I said Linspire is the best OS ever. I now feel I should be slapped silly for saying this. Well, after having XP screw me over so badly ... anything else is the best thing ever.
While the polls are running, and for a short time after the winners are announced, we prefer to not open competing threads. Although it can be a good thing to include all the DEs available, in reality most of them are used to little that they don't get any real votes. Give it a few months and open a new poll.
If you do start a new poll sometime soon, please try to separate KDE 3.x from kde 4.x. So far, my experience of KDE 4 hasn't been positive and I certainly wouldn't want to do anything that could be interpreted as a positive vote for that piece of crud (...but they could have fixed it by then...maybe).
