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'd like you to tell me what do You think about XFCE (I mean XFCE3 and XFCE4).
I love this wm and I think it's the best.. (maybe for women the best??), but my bf thinks, KDE is better..
And what do you think about XFCE??
Welcome to LinuxQuestions.org. I think XFCE is great. I use it myself. I have no idea what peoples sees on KDE. For me, it's just a newbie desktop, good for the ones coming from Windows. It's shipped with a hole bunch of stuff and is extremely heavy. It does, looks better then Windows can look, but Macs also looks great in those cute little boxes, but that does not make it better...
Before XFCE I started out with Solaris 9.0 x86. That one comes with a very similar desktop manager called CDE (Common Desktop Environment). It's really ugly, but very, very functional and easy to use. Unfortunately, CDE wants to be "Linux Desktop", but it's not free and, for a desktop only, it's very expensive. Just as useless as Opera Browser. With so many good (and better) free alternatives around I see no point of purchasing one.
I then came out of google with XFCE. It's basically a CDE, but still have great looks and ever lighter and ever easier to use then CDE. I really like that one and I will stick with this desktop for quite a long time now... Blackbox is a big second favorite for me though

Well, I like Balckbox and Fluxbox too and maybe I'll try it a bit later...
In XFCE the best is, I think, You can have some programs fro KDE and GNOME and nothing more, I think it's 100% personalized.
And that's great.
Well, XFCE is my fav, maybe because it so... cut, so... sweet. Maybe I used nod good enough words, but I think it is, like I said.
I made my desktop as MacOS a bit (I used MacOS mode in KDE and it comes to XFCE too).
XFCE is WM for indywidualists, I think. Of course, KDE or GNOME You can config in your own way, but it still looks like KDE, Gnome the same, I think. And with XFCE it doesn't have to.
Hi I see there are some people who know xfce and I need a little help:
I'm new to Linux and I'm experiencing some trouble installing xfec 4.0.3 on Mandrake9.2. The xfce people didn't have a build order posted for the rpms (I don't know if that's important) so i just installed them in this order : libxfce4util libxfcegui4 libxfce4mcs xfce-mcs-manager xfce-mcs-plugins and everything went ok. Then I tried to install xfce-panel and i got this error V3 DSA signature: BAD, key ID 8b9e12ab. I got this message as warning for other rpms before and i don't know what to do. Xfce-panel is the next rpm i have to install because of the dependencies. I tried redownloading it and it's still the same.
