Time Event
Window Managers
Hey all, I've been playing with a window manager called FluxBox. Has anyone else seen it? It's based on the BlackBox code, but it adds several additional features.

The biggest feature is adding tab support ala PWM. Second would be the merging in of BBKeys directly into the window manager. These two things alone make FluxBox and excellent window to investigate for those that want something minimal, flexible and extremely, extremely fast.
[ linux+ certification ]

Out of curiosity, have any of you taken the Linux+ certification exam? I'm thinking about taking it if I can get a better hold on Linux. As it stands, I've just gotten my feet wet a little tinkering with Red Hat 7.1, Debian, and Corel Linux ( the distro I have on my P-III at the moment ). I'm reading up on it more than hands on since I don't like going into things blindly.

If you can suggest decent linux resources ( books mostly, I've still got some gift cards to blow from the holidays )...I'd appreciate it.

My current Linux bookshelf contains:

Linux for Dummies Quick Reference
Linux Essential Reference
Installing Debian GNU/Linux
Corel Linux Starter Kit
Corel Linux for Dummies
Linux+ Study Guide
Caldera OpenLinux 2.2 Fast & Easy
How to Use Linux
Caldera OpenLinux Installation and Configuration Handbook
Caldera OpenLinux Unleashed
Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 Unleashed
SuSE Linux Unleashed
Linux Programming Unleashed
Linux System Administrator's Survival Guide 2nd Ed
Linux Complete

I know some are rather light reads, just basic gloss overs. I like a light read since I have a lot of time taken up with other projects and classes...
