Worth The Wait!
on April 1, 2016
While waiting for this book I had the opportunity to try and use a number of the other RHEL7 RHCE guides and found them all rather disappointing. This author's RHEL6 guide was the one I made the most use of when studying for my RHCE, and this guide looks like it's of the same high quality. I don't envy him the task of learning all the changes in RHEL7 and incorporating them into this new book! It looks like he hit most of them.
I was a bit annoyed that he hand-waves past one of the biggest RHEL7 changes-- network interface naming. He notes that one can configure a network interface to be called 'eth0' and then proceeds to use minimally changed examples from RHEL6. I would have liked to have seen more of a RHEL7-ish way of doing things rather than a quick and dirty "keep it like RHEL6" approach, but I also understand that if we waited for this book to be perfect, RHEL8 probably would already be released before the "perfect" book would be.
I've also had trouble finding the online errata. The site they list for downloads and errata doesn't seem to know this book exists yet. Maybe it's still too new.
