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: Do you like the look of the fonts in 13.37
Like I give a ...... My eyesight is so bad it makes no difference.
I definitely saw a difference upon first starting up (though I already assumed I would prefer the 'old style' as mentioned in CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT), and I wasn't overly fond of it (though I could live with it). After using the autohinter there is still a very subtle difference from 13.1 but I actually prefer it. So I'm perfectly happy with the current font situation, though it should be noted that I care very little about fonts.
but in reality this looks better
only thing that i make was to setup DPI (force fonts DPI )to 96 in kde systems settings
That's terrible, I could not work with fonts like that.
I hope I can change font look in 13.37 to this one I have in my 12.2.
I haven't had time to upgrade to 13.37 yet and I've skipped 13 and 13.1 because 12.2 has been so good and I didn't want to deal with the unfinished KDE 4
But I'm upgrading this week so I hope I can make the changes. Verdana is my favorite font for onscreen reading.
I've tested many other fonts but I could never make any other font look as sharp and clear as Verdana. Have my eyes been infected by some Microsoft virus?! Please help!
