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.

File name tab completion changed the game iMO. Unless I'm dealing with picture files where the thumbnails are a significant advantage I tend to stick to the CLI for file operations these days.
The rest of the time I use thunar, (not out of any like for it, but simply that it's already installed and good enough)
Not sure what the hate for Dolphin is about though. I don't use KDE4, but when I did try it, Dolphin was one of the few things I liked about it.
I tried Rox a few weeks back when I was playing with tiling window managers and was trying to find something that was very keyboard orientated: I couldn't get on with it at all.
'thunar' with custom actions and thunar plugins from SBo.
Very intuitive, flexible, stable and works great and integrated perfectly (for me) within my fluxbox WM.
('xfsettingsd &' in my fluxbox startup file)
I like dolphin and konq' but I almost always find my self using thunar.
I actually use my own custom actions for every day tasks such as manipulating files through to specialised scripts/launchers for system admin - all within an easy right-click from thunar.
Also alot easier than making/maintaining dot.desktop files for dolphin/konq' custom actions.
