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'm a newbie to Linux. Haven't used OO or LO much yet. I still do most of my work in MSO (because of my job). I did notice some problems with OO not translating .pps files accurately. Most of the problems were concerned with timing and effects. In the old days I used to like WordPerfect 6.0 and Lotus 1-2-3 Release 5. OK, I'm showing my age now. ()
The thing i most like is that they all work well together and that each has a niche where it outperforms the others. Generally they all cover the middle-ground well. Co-operative competition. There is no need for 1 bloated "be everything to all people", anymore especially when it's too big for a lot of machines now.
Gnome Office and Google-docs have their uses when i can't get at LO for some reason. I'm still forced to use MS Office sometimes but mostly just to check how things will look to MicroSquish users. Not really used KOffice nor Caligra much and it was a long time ago. Lotus is based on an old version of OOo. OOo has now become AOO.
It might be nice to see some others in there. Google-docs, NeoOffice (also based on an old OOo), whatever iThings use by default and yes, why not MS Office!?
It is good to have this pole annually or thereabouts. Is there going to be an easy link to last year's results?
