4-0 out of 5 stars Good information for the computer-savvy Linux newbie...
It seems that Ubuntu Linux has made the leap from "just another distro" to "distro of choice" as opposed to Fedora.Since I haven't done anything with Ubuntu yet, I decided to get started with a review of the book Beginning Ubuntu Linux: From Novice to Professional by Keir Thomas.While I'm not sure it caters completely to the professional, I think it does a good job of getting a computer-savvy person up to speed on what they can expect from running a Linux distribution (in this case, Ubuntu).
4-0 out of 5 stars recommend
I have dabbled with Linux before. Mainly installing RedHat9 on my Thinkpad in a dual-boot with Windows98.
5-0 out of 5 stars A very useful book for all Ubuntu Linuxusers
Anybody who have heard about Linux would be aware of Ubuntu which is a very popular flavor of Linux created by the South African firm Canonical founded by the space tourist Mark Shuttleworth. In fact, they set the precedent of supplying free CDs of this very popular OS to any one interested in installing and trying out Linux on their machine. Recently, I got hold of this wonderful book named "Beginning Ubuntu Linux - From Novice to Professional" authored by Kier Thomas. Being a Ubuntu user myself, I was pleased to see a Linux book specifically concentrating on Ubuntu, finding its way to the book stores. This book is aimed at people who are new to Linux and who wish to start their Linux journey by installing Ubuntu on their machines.

5-0 out of 5 stars Empowering, Clear, and Consise
I have to say that this book is simply amazing.I have searched the longest to clearly understand not just about PKI, but actually how to implement it, and was always referred to tombs of mathematical theory and such.This book demystifies PKI infrastructure in clear and concise explanations (but not overkill though), and has a lot of material on how to practically implement a variety of PKI architectures that can fit small businesses to huge enterprise corporations.
4-0 out of 5 stars Bset book I've seen on PKI and certificate management
Brian Komar tackles, what I've seen countless other authors refer to as a difficult to understand subject matter.It appearantly took a whole team at Microsoft to explain it to him, but it looks like he got it right.Of the many books I've read that address certificates and PKI this is the only one I've seen that presents a complete picture, where I didn't walk away wondering... but how does this part of it work, or why did they do that this way.
5-0 out of 5 stars The best PKI implementation guide
This is by far the best reference out there for understanding PKI in general and implementing Microsoft Windows Server 2003 CA infrastructure. Komar's depth of knowledge and breadth of experience clearly shows. Found the description of CAPolicy.INF files and sample files and scripts in this book extremely useful - that alone saved me a lot of time. And it doesn't end there...

not complete, but how could it be. i use this all the time to look up syntax.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for anybody working on Unix Env
This is the best pocket reference book that you can get. Its been really helpful to me in a lot of occasions when you just know that there is a command to do it but just cannot remember what the command is. Would definitely say a must to anybody starting or already working with Unix/Linux.

5-0 out of 5 stars Linux Companion
If you are new to Linux like me and would like to learn Linux in a week then this book is a must have along with "Linux for Dummies" by LeBlance.

5-0 out of 5 stars One very useful reading
As my experience suggests this highly useful book does very well as a companion for "UNIX Essentials and UNIX Core" DVD.While it is nicely written it is a pleasure to read and follow. As I followed someone's review, I have coupled it with the DVD and they supplement one another quite nicely! Concise format makes it easier to find topics as required.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction
I came across Expect while I was trying to find a programming language to automate certain tasks in my experiments.After seeing how practical it was with automating command line sessions and I decided to get this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Nice reference to have
The good thing about this book is that it gives one a basic back ground of TCL before delving into Expect which, makes it an excellent "quick" reference book to have on the shelf. The only drawback I can really think of is that it is not extensive as it should be to make it an exhaustive reference guide. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars From zero to Pythonista in less than 700 pages
First, one caveat: before reading this book, get a feeling for Python from the official tutorial, and some of the excellent tutorials and book available online (e.g., parts of "Dive into Python"). The greater the experience you have with other languages, the shorter the warm-up period. Then, buy this book. The chapters on the language description and OOP are models of clarity and brevity, in any book/reference and any language. All the other chapters are extremely useful too. This book complements perfectly the official library and language references, and covers almost everything you will ever need. It truly is the ideal reference book, and an incredible value for the money. I just hope that Alex Martelli will keep future editions below 700 pages while adding material on other GUI frameworks and PyPy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed
Well organized comprehensive desk reference.Can serve as an introduction to Python for a reader willing to do some heavy lifting.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book for Python
Never got the 1st ed. so I got the 2nd ed. as soon as it came out last month (yes, I've been waiting for it :-D). I have to say I am not a Python expert but have been using C and other programming languages for years. I was looking for a book which can help me learn Python and also can be used as a reference. Now I am very happy I found it and it reaches my expectation. It's a solid book with 690+ pages full of everything I need to know about Python. Highly recommended ! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent coverage, well written
I found this book to be both comprehensive and well written. It was recommended to me by a very experienced AIX user. I am much less experienced, but I also found the book very helpful- it has a good mix of information, and is presented in a logical, well formatted way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Techno shock
I used AIX in the mid 90's. I got pretty good at installations, SNA services, peripherals and applications. Since them I switched to HP/UX and moves from version 9 to 10 to 11; so I am familiar with today's systems.

5-0 out of 5 stars very insightful UNIX introduction
Well, once I have started with this book and it had beenhelpful and well guiding book. In is not the "only" book you will need. I have followed someone review's advice and paired this book with a "UNIX Essentials" DVD and they made a very effective couple.
5-0 out of 5 stars nice first UNIX book
I like easy to read book and I also had assumed that learning UNIX is not necessarily has to be a struggle. This book stood up to my expectations almost perfectly: it is very well written and clearly expressed work. It does not overwhelm with technical details and does not press too much. I also followed an advise in someone review and purchased "UNIX Essentials" DVD that is complete unix course recorded. These two nicely complement one another. You watch it and you read it. If you didn't catch it from the first try you watch it again and read it again. In two months I found myself confident to that extend that gave advises to our system administrator and he accepted them because there were subjects that he wasn't completely sure. What I can say, in three month I passed my first interview and got a job! Sure it is a way to start there much of more advanced reading that will take over you with a time however these two provide you with the BASIS!
4-0 out of 5 stars an excellent handy reference for LEARNERS
I made a mistake buying this book. It may not be apparent from the cover graphics that the name of this book is 'Learning the (in smaller print) UNIX Operating System' and not just 'Unix operating System' - which I was looking for.

This book is a tremendous reference resource for anyone who works in the IBM mainframe environment, especially for those who don't work with JCL on a daily basis or for those seldom-used tasks for which you may not have any "canned" JCL readily available. I strongly recommend this book as an invaluable JCL reference document.

I am a mainframe programmer for 8 years and never had a good book like this one.

It's sad to see that so many computer users seem to have no sense of humor. I, for one, appreciate a book that approaches such a dry subject with a smirk and lightens the weighty technical jargon with an occasional witty aside.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest thing since sliced bread
When Microsoft took an elegant simple schema from UNIX and redesigned it into a convoluted might mare called "Active Directory" it was time for this book. Turns out that "Active Directory" is not active or a directory; who would have guessed? Well this book starts you off with correcting concepts and even lets you know that with the new terminology that the definition of "domain" has been changed.5-0 out of 5 stars A great little book
One of my students told me about this book and brought it to class. I hadn't expected so much technical content from a Dummies book. This little book really should be the starting point for anyone interested in Active Directory.

3-0 out of 5 stars A decent book of negligible usefulness
The fantastic complexity of Windows 2000 Active Directory almost makes the title of this book an oxymoron. Win2K presents a huge paradigm shift to network administrators, since the Active Directory is a completely new, radically different beast from what Windows NT was. Understanding AD and how it works takes patience...it isn't accidental that there are 1000+ page books out there on setting up and maintaining an AD infrastructure. This book doesn't aim to help you do specific tasks in AD, but what it does very well is explain in basic terms what AD is and does, how it it structured, and give you the frame of reference you need before you delve further in. But I'm not sure how many people need to [pay] for this book when there are other books out there that deal much more extensively in the workings of AD. The bottom line is that computer enthusiasts curious about the central feature of Win2K and newbie administrators of Win2K who have little or no experience with NT4 will find it a useful primer on AD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Linux Kernel People
I recently started working on the Linux kernel and found myself3-0 out of 5 stars What's there is good, but...
In many ways this is a great book.The subject is one that is known to induce headaches, and the author covers it with truly admirable clarity.It's worth buying the book for the chapter on cache consistency alone; like many others, I had to spend years piecing the same information together from varied sources, and it would be hard to overstate the value of having it all in one place.5-0 out of 5 stars THE book if you are a kernel/threading developer.
I work on MP SVR4 kernels and this book is where I got most of my basics on MP from. I didn't understand the contents all at once - especially the initial intro to memory models in chapter 8, but after reading the SPARC specs (V8 & V9) and chapter 13, I can see how all this is relevant.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Money
This book lived up to and surpassed my expectations.
4-0 out of 5 stars A solid book on data-binding
Before this book, I had very little Windows Forms 1.0/1.1 experience. So, I can't speak to how well it works for people who are moving from the 1.0/1.1 world into 2.0. But for those starting with Windows Forms 2.0, this covers data binding to a depth I doubt will be surpassed by any other source. Ever.
3-0 out of 5 stars As long as you only want to bind to a data base.
This book (as the title suggests) is strongly geared towards data binding in the context of "Smart Clients."From this book, I take "Smart Client" to mean that you are only showing tabular data directly from databases.He spends 80% of the book talking about binding to data bases with the DataGridView control.Because of this, other aspects of data binding are neglected.

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
This book was a disappointment. I had expected a reference of the caliber of David Pogue's Mac OS X Tiger manual.Among problem areas: a hard-to-navigate and incomplete index, fuzzy photo insets, and incorrect cross-references. The manual has the feel of something put together in a hurry without proper proof-reading, and borrowing heavily from canned sources. I learned some things but had to work harder to glean the information than I should have. I would not recommend this manual, unless it's the only game in town. I don't think it is.

2-0 out of 5 stars Beware the mistakes
I am a big fan of the Missing Manual series. Previous books have given me lots of insights into my installed software and have made my computing time much more efficient. I therefore approached this book with much enthusiasm. Office is such a gargantuan program, with tons of bells and whistles, that Microsoft itself estimates that most userstake advantage of less than a third of its capabilities.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good book crippled by inadequate index
I was impressed by the other 'Missing Manual' book which I have read, their guide to OSX, and had high hopes for this one.The book itself is quite decent, though not as well written as the OSX guide.However, it is crippled by a totally inadequate index.First, the way in which the index is organized makes little sense -- some Word topics are listed alphabetically on their own, while others are grouped together as sub-entries under 'Word', forcing you to look in several different places.Far worse, the index is simply incomplete, making it difficult if not impossible to look upthe answers to specific questions.

5-0 out of 5 stars A trully admirable accomplishment - must have type of book
Before you spend your time and money on purchasing any books on the subject, buy this one first. Depending on your background and your needs, it may also be the last one you will purchase.
5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent book and covers the 2.6 kernel
This is an excellent book which explains everything related to the TCP/IP Linux implementation in the 2.6 kernel. There are other excellent Linux networking books, but this is the best one in terms of the details for the TCP/IP implementation.
5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Introduction for an Engineer
This is an in-depth guide to implementing and using the Linux TCP/IP stack.It begins with a general overview of TCP/IP networking, with background information on applicable networking standards.From there, it details the TCP/IP implementation in Linux by following a pack of data as it flows through the stack from the sending system, out the wire, and back through the input side of the stack in the receiving machine. This unique approach gives programmers an inside look at the entire process.

2-0 out of 5 stars somewhat useful but not great
This book should be named "Beginners Broad Overview of Mac OSX Programming Topics".
5-0 out of 5 stars Well thought out approach
About 90% of my programming knowledge comes from books. And this is the first book I have read that actually looks at troubleshooting your code. Most books have a little two page summary of troubleshooting, but this had examples of what to look for. Excellent for the novice and still handy for the somewhat experienced. The approach of teaching the tools and the code at the same time was extremely refreshing, as most books seem to want to teach either one or the other and expecting you to know something. The Objective-C section of the book is not complete, but it has enough to get you productive relatively quickly. The one downside, this book is probably not a keeper, meaning that you spend the money and in less than a year, you will not really need it as a reference any longer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Getting the Novice Started
If you're an Apple guy or gal, you probably know that Apple believes in supplying an awful lot of ancillary programs with their basic system. The fact that you're looking at this book at all is that you probably have some special job that needs programming and it's up to you to do it. If you have not programmed on an Apple before, or if OS X is new to you, then this is the book you need.
