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 know I can get Windows software to run in Linux, (Ubuntu specifically). Is there a way I can get mac software to run under Linux. I specifically need Keynote.
I am aware that there are alternatives to keynote/power point but for reasons beyond the scope of the question they will not suffice. Should I need to change to another Distro to do so that is ok. A Google search turned up nothing newer than 2008.
Yes, these answers were given to the OP before. And the MOL software was last updated in June, 2007, which makes it a bit old.
OP, VirtualBox runs the latest Mac OSX very well..I'm even running Xcode on it, and developing iPhone/iPad apps. A bit of Google searching will turn up a pre-built VirtualBox virtual disk image, already built and configured. Download the torrent, AFTER purchasing your license for Mac OSX, and you should be all set; the website where I got mine had VB settings, too, so make sure they match. VirtualBox is painless to install, as you can get it from most distros online repositories.
Be sure to also install the VirtualBox guest tools and the extension pack, or you'll have VERY poor performance. After you install VirtualBox, go under File->Preferences->Extensions, and install the VirtualBox Extension Pack, available from Oracle's website (free, http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/se...ads/index.html).
