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.

you can try alternatively the Electricsheep screensaver
I'm running XFCE on Slack64 14 and it appeared that Electricsheep was "phoning home" so I disabled it months ago.
Is it true that this screensaver communicates with its server during operation? If so, then I'm mentioning this as a public service announcement for those that may not know. If not, then I stand corrected.
Electric Sheep is a collaborative abstract artwork founded by Scott Draves. It's run by thousands of people all over the world, and can be installed on any ordinary PC, Mac, Android, or iPad. When these computers "sleep", the Electric Sheep comes on and the computers communicate with each other by the internet to share the work of creating morphing abstract animations known as "sheep".
Every "sheep" of the Electric Sheep screensaver is a mpg video. These videos are downloaded from the master server (the "phoning home").
When it runs, the screensaver computes individual frames (the algorithm is that of a fractal flame) of a new "sheep" and uploads finished frames to the master server. Frames are joined there into a new mpg movie and made available for download.
