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 note that your CPU usage is about 20% while it doesnt seem to be running any programs in the foreground...
yeah it seems like a fluke in that screenshot. usually it idles around 3%-4%. thats what its at right now.

i made them myself to celebrate after i got photoshop and fireworks to run in wine. the set isnt finished yet, otherwise i'd upload them.
the launcher on the bottom is daisy the plasma applet. its available from slackbuilds. i use it because awn adds running processes to the dock, and messes up the icon scheme because it automatically uses the system icons instead of the dock icons. i figured i have a taskbar on top, i need a dock that i can just use to launch apps, not control them.

Notice that Ken is a skateboarder too (He's wearing Vans - That makes him UberKewl).
I've also included some of my other heavy metal heroes too, like (moving clockwise from the top-right):
Bill Joy - who, almost singlehandledly, arguably created the Internet - or at least he made the stack work, which many years later successfully nullified AT&T's claims that their code was in BSD, coz BSD's code was in their UNIX IP stack Let's not forget that he created SunOS too! Is that beer or water on the table?
Linus - Slammin' brewskies in his dorm room. Linux was created by a beer drinkin' coed. Who says that beer isn't proof that God loves us, and wants us to be happy?
Charley Kline - I'm not sure if the innocuous two characters he uttered are on par with Morse's, "What hath God wrought?", but he is undeniably, and without a doubt, the man who birthed the Internet with "LO", as in, "LO, and behold", or more accurately, "LOGIN" - just before the IMP crashed at SRI.
um... and some freakin' DeadHead Dude who, for some reason, we call, "The Man". He's obviously a beer drinker too!
And Jimmy Hendrix (Not pictured), who until my daughter reached the age of four, took everything I said literally and then one day she came to me and said, "Daddy? Jimmy Hendrix ISN'T GOD!"

Distribution: Slackware has beern Main OpSys for decades while testing others to keep up
I recently installed Slackware-Current (downloaded 12/10/2010) from Eric's Alien Blog which he so thoughtfully provides as an iso (and yes, more donations will be forthcoming in January) with what I understand is the last KDE release before the transition to udev only. I chose a fresh install rather than an upgrade to be safe at first and I am very pleased. I had been sorely tempted to go back to KDE v3.5.10 but thanks to Eric, I am coming around to KDE4.
I initially ran KWin for all the candy but have finally decided that the whole Cube thing is not for me so I turned that feature off. However I am still pretty much in love with all 4 desktops and am having a hard time deciding on just one. Please don;t say use them on other WM/DEs because although I have and use many others (and borrow icons and applets from them for others) they already have Backgrounds/Wallpapers that are unique and with which I am happy. So please help me offer input as to which, if any you love or hate. Thanks.
