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.

Slackware 13.1 KDE with conky running, and a Konsole, No I don't run as root normally.
Name on the konsole window isn't my real name, by the way, but the desktop look and .conkyrc files for that and my main user account are the same.
With dwm if you use the moveresize feature on a tiled window it will be converted into a floating window. You can alter the position of the split between the main window and the stack area, but there is no way to alter the position of the splits in the stack on the right (It's divided evenly). I3 does a much better job of allowing you to manually position and size tiles, dwm is more about automatic placement.
I love dwm, but I tend to use it only with a single tile per workspace - monocle layout - and perhaps a number of floating windows. Most apps really weren't written to be tiled and once you have more than a couple of tiles, the size gets so small that they become impractical to use.
