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.

I liked how open box was standards compliant and completely minimal but then I tried fluxbox and it was everything I was trying to make blackbox do. Both projects are equally important to the same lines of thinking.
Distribution: Slackware64-current with "True Multilib."
Slackware 12.2 and KDE 3.5.10.
The first one is a "clean" desktop, but Amarok and Thunderbird are running as you can see on the bottom right hand side of the screen.
In the second shot you will see Kopete, Opera running with this page, a old DOS database/client tracking program running in DOSBox, The American Heritage Dictionary running in Wine, Gwenview, and, as in the first shot, Amarok and Thunderbird.
Both thumbnails are not showing for some reason, at least not as I view this page in Opera, but if you click on the text "kde3.5.10-02.jpg" the clean desktop will be displayed.
The wallpaper is by, Bob van Alphen.

I've been using this theme since I changed from KDE to Fluxbox about 4 years ago. I rarely change the background. This one I've been using for about a year. My resolution is 1024x768 so the Eterm and Herrie windows cover a large area. I like to keep my desktop clean so Gkrellm is docked in the corner and only shows my wireless signal strength.
