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 agree that the first requirement is usability and Open Source only the second or third requirement. However, most accounting packages which do run on Linux are Open Source. So if your requirement is that it should run on Linux, FOSS comes most often for free.
If you have to install a VM to run your accounting software on it is an additional layer of complexity. When the application is not client/server you find yourself often in a position that you are not behind the machine where the VM is installed on. Et cetera.
