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.

Noticing that the mate-screensaver is starting up between 5 and 10 minutes regardless as to what I have it set up for (25 minutes). It seems to be ignoring my settings. I know this is in testing, but passing the info along. :-)
I have a strange problem. It started fine after installing. When I reboot the machine it won't start. The screen will flicker some pixels few times and x login screen comes back. I go to a virtual terminal and delete ~/.config/mate folder and reboot the machine, every things works fine. When it works it works like a charm. I am posting using the same desktop. I am running 32 bit.
