Linux and the Unix Philosophy

Amazon Order (or just read more about) Linux and the Unix Philosophy  from Amazon.com

I honestly couldn't read this. I did manage to browse it, which is something more than skimming but a lot less than actually reading.

The first few chapters were the worst. First, the author's writing style is pretty flat and uninteresting. But more importantly, this is all old hat, sheesh we know all that, tell me something new - it's boring for anyone who has been around Unix for any length of time.

However, the fact that it couldn't engage me does not mean that it wouldn't be just the thing for someone new to our world. If you don't grok why the Unix/Linux way really is better than the Microsoft way, reading this might open your mind. It might also be a good gift for someone just beginning to learn Linux.

Most of the people reading here can pass on this one.

Got something to add? Send me email.

A common and not necessarily apocryphal example portrays a solo practitioner starved for business in a small town. A second lawyer then arrives, and they both prosper. (Deborah L. Rhode)
