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 X Window System You Like More
I voted for Gnome because it is the one I am most familiar with and can actually use.
Xfce seems to be related to it, in that it comes with a few programs associated with Gnome, and I like it just as much, too. It's enlarging, though.
KDE just baffles me. Out to lunch over it. I try, but it wins. The collection of programs it comes with, such as Konqueror, are just weak. Krita has real potential, though, and it should be distributed more widely, while The GIMP can't pull itself out of the '90s and should be wiped off hard drives.
LXDE interests me for a specific netbook OS replacement, but I haven't used it much yet.
