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.

Since Sunday's night updates to -current, KDE 4.11 has been running very well and I've been using it far longer than I normally do when a new version is released. Used it most of yesterday and felt very tired by the time I turned off the computer. This morning I was up early and in two and a half hours my eyes were so tired I felt like taking a nap.
That "glassy look" takes it toll on the eyes.
Is there anyway to turn that off?
The Xfce desktop is much easier on the eyes.

I suffer from eye strain myself and what has helped me recently, after getting a new monitor, is making sure the brightness and contrast are calibrated correctly (there are webpages that have calibration images), setting the refresh rate as high as it will go, and running X at 120 dpi resolution rather than the default.
Dont know if any of that might make a difference for you, good luck
The shadow effects are part of the problem and contribute to the "blurry look." However, turning off the shadow effects must be one of those things that is so obvious, I missed it, as I've never found the "switch."
