    The difference as Smiki points out is simply which GUI package you run. I personally like Cinnamon (based on Gnome 3), Mate looks very similar to me (based on Gnome 2), Xfce is a lightweight implementation of the GUI, and KDE is the grandaddy of all GUI systems.

    I personally like Cinnamon, but the Mate edition is fine too, and I use Xfce on the NUC because it is much lighter weight on the PC. If you have a decent specification, Cinnamon or Mate are probably the two that you'd want. They get updated the fastest, and are Mint's "Mainstream" desktop GUI's.

    I realized, I failed to answer 1 critical question.

    What books and resources?

    http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ux-4175448942/ Is a great set of links, I can't argue with any of them.

    Personally, I've used a few of the O'Reilly Linux books, and I think I have an Ubuntu Server Administration book around here someplace, plus a number of books on Bash and Scripting.

    A quick glance @ Amazon revealed this: Linux Mint Essentials: Jay LaCroix: 9781782168157: Amazon.com: Books

    It looks ok, and might be a good starting point.

    However, I'd recommend finding a good Barnes and Noble (or Booksamillion or whatever) and browsing the Linux section. Look at a few Linux books particularly those marketed at new users, and focus on those that purport to teach the fundamentals.

    A book about Ubuntu, Debian or Mint would be ideal, as would a book about generic Linux. Flip through it and see how you like how it's written. Check the table of contents and make sure it covers File Systems, Shells, and Graphical Interfaces, as well as Kernels and apt-get. It should have a chapter on BASH, and scripting as well.

    There are several e-books on the Linux Documentation Site: The Linux Documentation Project

    And this book: The Linux Command Line by William E. Shotts, Jr. is free and contains a wealth of knowledge about the Linux command line!

    Good Luck.

    It's funny really, I've always found pursuing the inner workings of Windows to be rather intimidating, but, after reading the responses here, this feels like something I could actually do and the line of progression to the more technical aspects, should I choose to pursue it, is pretty well laid out and not like some wall you have to climb before you can do anything else. It looks like I have a lot reading to do, but if anything else comes to mind, add it to the list! I'm sure there is a lot of people sitting on the fence these days that could read this and see the possibilities as well.
