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 voted for open office, buti have to add honerable mention for gnome office. abiword adn gnumeric are actually better apps overall (esp for speed) but they just don't have the compatibility, and thats because open office was derived from a MAJORLY supported suite. speaking of which, i haven't touched star office since the 6 betas (the last thing that could be had for free) and it might be worth the money, but no more than i need, openoffice does the job well for free
Office Suites are useless. I think it's better to have separated programs for each thing, for example, If I need to write something I write it in plain text (perhaps rtf) or HTML, if I need a spreadsheet... well I never need a spreadsheet....p Database... hehe, sql... web design... again, plain html, wml, or even JS somewhere. I don't use flash because it takes too much time to load over a slow conection and because there is no GOOD free solution.
what else?? presentations, slides, etc? again, xml or docbook.
