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.

Hmm- yeah I hate that, there are a lot of business banks whose software uses IE browsers, so it's not just windows they want you to use but you have to use IE.
I say, vote with your feet and switch banks. I've done it and it's not that hard really, if you can handle linux I'm sure you can handle switching a few direct debits and writing a few letters. My new bank even let me print of example templates to send to my old bank to switch things over.
Well, as I've just switched over to Linux about two weeks ago, I thought I'd be booting into Windows a lot more than I have been doing...
Open Office takes care of everything that Microshaft Office did (and for free) and apart from a few little niggles about setting things up properly and getting things installed and configured correctly in Linux I'm totally happy with it and I don't see me abandoning Linux and going back to Micro$oft anytime soon.....
However, I do boot into Windoze to use some audio software, but I'm looking around for a Linux equivalent, and the only other things I use are Photoshop and a couple of games.
