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.

Not necessarily at the moment.The biggest difference that I can tell is that it's not subject to Oracle's rampage. It's a group of developers that left Oracle and built Libre Office off of OOo3.3Beta. So with it being at TDF instead of the grasp of Oracle, stuff can actually get done.
I have not bothered to remove Open Office, but I've pretty much stopped using OO. The two programs can exist quite nicely side-by-side on both Windows and Linux platforms (Yes, sometimes I am compelled to use Windows).
The current release of LibreOffice Writer and Calc are as stable and functional as OO Writer and Calc (I seldom use Impress unless someone emails me a slide show and never have used Math). The *.pdf export is flawless.
I understand that the goal of this release was to establish LO as a stable release, not to make significant changes. Based on my usage (which was normal usage, not testing), I would say that the Document Foundation succeeded.
I was able to use my OO templates in LO without a hiccough. I have also had to edit one of them and was able to do so, also without issue.
