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.

Voted Libreoffice but I like using FreeOffice on my low spec gear instead.
Only thing about using freeoffice is they pester one to buy the professional
version via email which this scooter tramp can live with.
As far as being included next year. I am more of a greasy hand guy than a
office desk clerk type of office software user.
So as long as I know where to look for what I need. I care neither one way or the other if this category is continued.
LibreOffice winning with 90.44% of the vote and increasing its percentage over the 2014 LQ awards. This could lead to another thread of whether Slackware leader Pat Volkerding should replace Calligra with LibreOffice in Slackware-current when work starts on the version after 14.2. It is probably worth it to add 30 megabytes to the install disk in order to have the most popular open source office suite. I also have JuLinux 10, which is based on Xubuntu 14.04; and that ships Apache OpenOffice which is very similar to LibreOffice.
No great surprise on the results here. Even though I haven't been a fan (now with 5.0 and even more 5.1 that's changing), I expected LO to dominate. I am somewhat surprised by how FEW votes there were for OpenOffice. Kinda shows just how much momentum they lost when LO was forked.
