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.

Calligra gets my vote - suprisingly usable for my basic Office Suite needs (I use Google Docs nearly as much).
Libre Office is good, possibly better for more frequent usagage and MS Office compatibility.
Have to admit to not even touching Open Office for a few years now.
Two suites Failed me this year LO and OOO
Libra Office generaly very good but .. it displays some diagrams incorrectly from doc this is really hard to find.. but it's persistent.
Open Office - very dramatic degradation of suite quality.. "stable" releases suffered from double text fields text, sudden closedown without any messages or system errors. Older versions was way more stable.
I'll only use Kingsoft's alpha of their office suite. Even though it's an alpha, more stable than Calligra in my experience, more modern than OpenOffice, and FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR faster than OpenOffice or Libreoffice.
checked Calligra and KingSoft both are disaster
Calligra even refused to open xls,docs.. (yes path was $HOME name was number.ext).. i don't see any improvemets in UI comparing to earler versions.
Kingsoft .. well interface is MS office 10 .. but it's bugged down and in very early alfa state.. freeze,terminates,do not edit diagrams in presentation, could not find construct diagrams in "excel" , etc..
