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.

I love the KDE and I love the fluxbox. I'm in fluxbox now. It looks like how I imagined linux the first time I heard of it. KDE 4+ looks sooo much better than vista IMHO. I'm running slackware 12.2 so I have default kde 3.5 installed. I love the "customizability". I like to run fluxbox when gaming and KDE for everything else.
Fluxbox is a champ; I especially like being able to customize everything by editing text files in vim. It's complex enough to be pretty, but simple enough to grasp almost completely: Fluxbox is perfect for me.
I'm not voting in the poll because I haven't tried all of them so cannot have an informed opinion; also some are desktop environments while others are window managers (OK -- the line between the two is blurred).
Some of the choices in the poll will get low votes simply because few people have used them, not because they compare unfavourably to the others.
I used Gnome for over a year and switched to Xfce less than a month ago; I am liking Xfce better than Gnome.
