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 need to build a simple db so I'm using oobase. I was able to create a few tables but when I open them and try to enter data I can't!! all the options are grayed out. I'm the owner of the file (db).
I think it is something simple but I can't figure it out!!
please help!!! I don't want to end up using M$crosoft access grrr
Office 2007 is a great product (IMO). It's well worth the 5 or 6 gigs to install Windows XP in a VM and install the full Office 2007 suite (again, IMO).
While I remain hopeful for open source alternatives (or even proprietary native Linux alternatives at this point), current Microsoft Office 2007 is just too good of a product to live without.
Again, that's just my opinion. I personally think that the Office Suite (and ESPECIALLY Visio) is the only good piece of software from Microsoft, and the only essential piece of software that does not have a Linux equivalent.
I think oocalc, oowriter, ooimpress are better than M$crosoft office now when it comes down to dbs I think m$crosoft is better (for now). I had a problem at work where excel wouldn't open a damaged spreadsheet... after trying to open that file on different machines I decided to cp it to my linux box and see if oocalc was going to open it AND IT DID i was able to recover the file and save it as xls.
