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.

That has got to get the award for the strangest, erm most artistic perhaps, unique desktop yet.
Thanks a lot... I was improving my Window Maker desktop for ten years. I was selecting applications and was seeking the best place for them. I newer have had any wallpaper. Just dockable applications and solid black background for root and white or gray for regular users. A few days ago I have seen sloppy wallpaper by pwc101 (Pierre Cazenave). It was like discovery of the new world. I customized it to my needs and now I have complete desktop.
Everybody has his own preferences. I like very tasteful wallpapers by pwc101, din, and lstamm, and I admire specialized's desktop for its subtle colors and windows.
Here is mine. Fluxbox with a background and clock with system tray. The only thing I really need to add is a pop out calender. I generally just open up xterm and type cal.
Some of those branded desktops are quite nice... somebody needs to make an unofficial package for them.... Though it should never be included with slackware. It's bad enough there is already a branded boot splash even though it's optional during the install process along with backgrounds unintentionally packaged with KDE by KDE.
