About the Author

After working as a teacher of Mathematics and as Deputy Head of an independent school in London, Roger Whittaker discovered Linux in 1996 and became increasingly interested (some would say obsessed). When SUSE Linux opened its UK office in 1999, he changed careers and worked as a technical and training consultant until early in 2004. He now works for Novell supporting Linux installations for large customers. He is Newsletter Editor for UKUUG, the UK's Unix and Open Systems user group.

Justin Davies has been a Linux user since the age of 15. After University, he joined SUSE Linux as a Technical Consultant where he specialized in Linux on non-Intel architecture. He then spent time working with value-added resellers in Europe to define their open source strategy and go-to-market plans around Linux. He is now the founder and CTO of Ninetyten, a social networking consultancy based in London, where he is still providing solutions based on open source software.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction - Light on How-Tos January 12, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good book if you know almost nothing about Linux or the seven layers of the OSI model and other basic concepts. But if you want to know anything specific about configuring Linux services or the global-type sevices that this release of Opensuse supports (NFS, Samba, etc.) this book will not help very much.

After using the CD as an install medium, I spent most of my time looking for answers on-line, not in the book.

I teach Linux at a local community college. I needed a good book that would teach my students some command line and some GUI in Linux. This was the only book that really came close.
No this book does not say click here, then click here, now type this, and hit next on trouble shooting. You really can't do that with a computer book because things changes with patches and software installs.
What this book is good at is telling you what tools are available and then letting you use them. The first few chapters cover the install(which I have now installed SUSE 11 on 10 totally different machines and they have all had the same outcome, flawless), software management, and command line all at the same time.
This book is a step up to previous books I have taught with the either focus on GUI or CLI not both. This helps when I have to explain to my students why command line is so powerful and GUI is just for nubes.

OpenSuSe 11 is a vast improvement over the previous version. It has many features that make it very user frndly even to those weaned on Windows. This book is an excellent reference and explains various features and commands well.

I am basically a Windows guy who only needs to interact with Linux for a day or two each month, so I am never going to become a Linux guru. Luckily this book gives me exactly what I need when I need it. Well written, well structured, easy to use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative and very thick olume March 17, 2011
By Boni
First let me state that it is very big volume. I purchased it on final sale of Borders store along with OpenSUSE 11.4 Linux, 4-disks DVD Installation and Reference Set. I was expecting more from the book of this size and weight. The first part of the book that describes the installation is virtually useless as it describes installation for an outdated edition. The disk that comes with the book is also outdated. This book gives fair amount of information of basic file and process operations and later chapters jump into daemons. I was expecting more of openSUSE specific perks in the book, because Linux daemons are excessively described in countless free online texts. The information is the book is accurate and useful, but I got an impression that it is more "general" Linux book rather than openSUSE dedicated book. For that(and outdated disk) I take one star, from this otherwise useful reading. I also wish think book have smaller format. Apparently "bible", must be made thick, but I think it easily could be compressed into smaller format. Sometimes I'm hesitant to open it because of its size.
