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.

Distribution: Fedora 18, Slackware64 13.37, Windows 7/8
The phantom window returns even after setting to XRender (upon reboot). So I have to switch between OpenGL and XRender after every reboot to get rid of this stupid phantom window? I don't know, should I upgrade KDE or something? If so, where can I get a slackbuild to do that?
Distribution: Slackware 14.1 32bit on laptop 14.2 64bit on desktop
I switched my desktop and laptop both to LXDE and have been very happy with it. I used XFCE for a long time, it is another good alternative and comes preloade if you did a full install. I refuse to use KDE any more.
Just wanted to let you know, I upgraded to V4.6.5 and it took FOREVER to download everything but it went flawlessly and now the phantom window issue is resolved. KDE V4.6.5 looks a whole lot better than the default KDE! Now I'm just trying to figure out how to do the things I have taken for granted for so long in Gnome; for example in gnome I just create a folder called nautilus-scripts and I drop in all my scripts and then I can right click on files and there is a 'scripts' option where the files I select get fed into the script my scripts as arguments.
Part of me really wishes the Linux community would consolidate all this stuff so our skills would be more transferable.
