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'd just like to comment on the Open-Office spreadsheet layout.
I for one would like to see above the number "1" cell a Row added then at the front of that row a "(x)" - (for the x in the x, y coordinates and also so "(x)" would not be confused with a regular "x"). This would act as a Header row and any items added below a header would correspond sequentially to the numbers to the left column of numbers (so item number 5 would not be in row 6).
Something similar probably is not needed as much in the Alphabet characters row. However in front of the "A", a "(y)" could be used there, as in the x, y coordinates (again using "(y)" so as not to be confused with a regular "y"). Now it is programed so when you add a column or row the Alphabet row jumps over, and the Numeric column moves up.
I wonder if this new layout could be an added to the option menu?
Just a thought!

P. S. (x) and (y) could of course be substituted with maybe some other Greek or Latin character...?
