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 Skype all the time and would like to vote for it here, but I can't. The Linux version is too buggy and the bugs aren't getting fixed. (The fact that it is closed source isn't helping, either ) So, reluctantly, my vote goes to gaim.
I think it's sad that skype has to be looked down upon because it's closed source, it's an amazing program and has features that put other clients to shame. Sure it's closed source, but i think that says something in itself. They had a linux version from the start. They made sure that the linux niche wouldn't go overlooked.
There are should be multiselection realised, or it will give useless results! I used for a long time gaim and it is really great, but with Jabber, I think psi is the best. It consumes less memory than any other, has many features and it is continuously being improved. Alas, I used gaim far too longer and it got my voice.
