The best way to learn UNIX and Linux!
Why yet another guide for UNIX and Linux?
As far back as I can remember I have had UNIX around. My bed time stories were about it and the first words out of my mouth were 'UNIX is cool'. Well, maybe not the first words, but I have been around the UNIX systems my entire professional career. I figure it is just as close.
I have one more confession to make. Lately I have been getting tired of seeing a thousand pages or longer for introductory books on UNIX and Linux or practical guides that are anything but practical. All these books give UNIX a reputation for being extremely difficult to learn and use. Would you want to read a thousand page practical or introductory book? No? I can't blame you. I wouldn't want to read it either.
I hope that this book will change your mind about UNIX. It will arm you with a true practical knowledge of UNIX. Knowledge which will serve as your guide and as your reference. Enjoy it and happy journey!
This edition is fully updated!
It is pocket size and it is for the rest of us!
What's New in Version 6.0
Optimized for iOS9!
Keeps it simple, readable, and useful
I have just started, but I had to stop to write a review. The author starts off with noting how heady and overwhelming Linux books, etc., can be and then rejects the premise. My experience - though I know nothing much about it I love it, if you want to kill a computing conversation dead - say "Linux". All eyes glaze over.
He starts from the base, the very beginning, and builds up in small increments from there - in a logical order. You'll end up with a better understanding of computing in general.
Linux is awesome, but why? Read the app. Like many things but more so, Linux can be as simple or as complex as you like or need.
I've made sure to keep a Linux PC handy - for years. I have done simple to complex things with the command line given step-by-step instruction, with no clue as to what I was doing. I haven't actually "learned" at all. I don't know which parts of the stuff I'm typing in are commands or what they're doing. Anything I think to do I have to look up, even if it's simple. I'm looking forward to learning and using Linux on my own level - and going from there.
Thanks for a great, accessible, highly readable, info app.
#1 for learning UNIX and Linux by far!
The content, the details, and examples are all top-notch. Very useful for anyone who needs both Unix and Linux. It is a very good reference and a learning tool. Quick command find is very helpful too.
