This is far the greatest linux book that I have read. I used this book for 4 yrs, eventhough i spill water on it, i did recover it and still used it. I hope GM can create a new book for the new linux distros like this.

By cybernard on August 7, 2013
Format: Paperback
All of the software is outdated. You use the versions listed and you will be vulnerable to get hacked. You update to newer versions and you could face a whole different set of dependencies. This book is dangerous for the beginner user be they will not know how out-of-date the data is and how to deal with significant changes in the last 10 years. Further with most computers have at least 1gb of ram if not more many of the memory saving techniques are not necessary. The efforts the authors go to, in some cases, to save 10mb-20mb of ram is silly today.

Format: Paperback
The great content is marred by countless grammatical foibles which make the book nearly unreadable. Here's an example: "By default denying access to every one, is the first step of a reliable security policy. In this way we eliminate the possibility of forgetting someone or to making a mistake."
