As Linux becomes less of a nerd's toy and moves into the mainstream, it needs to support serious office productivity. The single most complete solution for creating formatted text documents, spreadsheets, slide shows, and simple desktop databases is Corel's WordPerfect Office 2000 for Linux. You'll find complete, if unexciting, documentation of this suite in WordPerfect Office 2000 for Linux: The Official Guide. It's an instruction book, written mostly for the end user, that shows how to get the results that you want. Readers are assumed to have a working, preinstalled instance of the suite. The book focuses on the suite itself, and doesn't delve into much discussion of how to use Linux in general.
The index is a bit flawed in that you have to know the proprietary name, instead of the generic name, of a feature to find it. To locate information on Quattro Pro's series-completion tool, for instance, you have to know that it's called QuickFill. After you track down the passage that interests you, however, you'll find clear, no-frills documentation (and numbered steps) of the suite's whole set of features. A brief section on ObjectPAL is painted with a brush that's too broad for developers, but it's enough to get power users started in use of the language. --David Wall
