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'll get flamed for this one, but so what. At least I'm honest enough to admit I use crossover office w/ ms-office. It's still the best option.
OO is just too damn slow, and is a resource hog. I keep trying it, but it isn't quite there yet. Abiword is nice for simple stuff (so is leafpad for that matter). Haven't tried koffice in long time, may be time to take another look.
I like OpenOffice because it is free, does everything I need and it can read MS files . I need it to read MS Office files because my school uses MS Office. I am going to download portable OpenOffice so I can do my work with a open format .
Great stuff done by the developers of both products.
Koffice is great and quick so if you want to do something really quickly then fire up KOffice.
However to compete with something like M$ Office OO is almost there -- not quite but surely will be soon. This product goes from strength to strength. A bit more polish on the performance side is needed -- but of course as always if we want more and more features we have to pay the penalty in performance and size.
This latest version of Open Office addresses most of the problems I had with trying switch away from M$ EXCEL.
Of course OpenOffice! It the best open source office suit ever! You know, there is that Open Document Format Alliance (Even google is part of that!, http://www.odfalliance.org/ ). OOO is the most capable of using ODF, OOO is a multiplatform suit (this is a huge advantage!), and OOO has a huge support background. With these specs this office beats all the others, and becouse of that multiplatorm thing it really has a big future.
