A pity, because of all the Unix-like OSs out there, Solaris has much going for it that the others just don't. ZFS works properly (though that isn't a problem for other unUnixes now) and DTRACE is available in all its shiny glory.
But when it was alive and well, this book was an very good reference to have to hand.
With the demise of the Open Solaris Operating System, most people would think that a book about Open Solaris is nothing but a door-stop.
Even though Open Solaris itself is gone, it lives on in the Illumnos Project as Open Indiana!
So, this book has a high relevance to those investigating and using the Open Indiana Operating System.
Give it a try, you will be most surprised and excited that you have found such a great Operating System, that hasn't been put to mainstream use.
I'm not new to Unix-type operating systems, I've been working on Unix systems for over 13 years. I am an expert with Linux, proficient with *BSD systems, and have varied experience with Irix and HPUX, but have rarely had the chance to work on Solaris. With all of the wonderful features introduced with OpenSolaris in the past couple years, I've taken another look at this great operating system and have used the OpenSolaris Bible as my guide.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking to run or administrate OpenSolaris, and I would certainly recommend OpenSolaris itself.
My only complaint might be that this book will probably become outdated very quickly, due to the impressive rate at which OpenSolaris is being developed. In fact, just yesterday, a new version of OpenSolaris was released, introducing features not present or discussed in this book. However, this is currently the most updated printed material available today, so you really can't go wrong.
This book covers everything and more than that course! And it gets better.. it is explained really well.
5/5 from me.good job Miner and co.
