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 use Xfce but haven't voted because I've only used Gnome and Xfce so any vote would be meaningless. Oh -- and KDE a few times for 10 minutes when using Knoppix. And ixi.Desktop for a month under SCO UNIX ~1993, remembered as very nice ... ?
In the past I would vote KDE3, now xmonad or subtle + xterm like a "full" desktop environment with bash/tcsh or mc as a file manager.
I cann't help myself but KDE 3.5.10 is still superior even to latest KDE 4.10.x in sense of clarity & intuitivity, ergonomics, configurability, speed & memory consumption and greater conformity to classical system /etc tree configuration (cups comes to mind). I have still installed Slackware 12.2 on one older Thinkpad and from time to time I'm playing with it and still get assured KDE4 is a regression and took a wrong direction.
