Question Gnome Documentation

My company is looking at Linux as the standard desktop operating system. They have chosen Gnome as the xWindow app (if that's the correct way to state this). I also read in the RedHat desktop operating system they will be coming out with, they have also chosen Gnome. I have been playing with RedHat 9.0 using KDE and had gotten fairly comfortable with it, but I guess I need to get more knowledgable with Gnome.

Can anybody out there recommend some good material on studying up on Gnome?

Not sure exactly what you are looking for, but have you tried the Gnome website yet? There is a lot fo documentation there, from quick intro, to full user's guide.

But the best way to learn is to use it, so how about installing it at home and trying it out?

Thanks, Muzzy, for the response. Yes, you are absolutely right ... hands on, on the job training is often the best way. And yes, I have Gnome on my desktop and am trying to learn it. Just was wondering if there were some shortcuts on that leaning.

I found with KDE that it was only via searching through and wondering what something does, playing with that thing, and discovering that it might actually be worthwhile that I was able to "learn" KDE. Not a bad way, but very time consuming. So I was trying for a shortcut....
