The BSD documentation set has always been a valuable reference for Unix programmers and administrators. The new 4.4 release will be of even more use, both because the entire set has been updated and because documentation for many free programs not orignally part of the BSD distribution, including many of the GNU utilities, has been included. For this reason, and also because Linux distributions include some BSD utilities, these manuals may be useful to Linux programmers and administrators. The full set of five manuals is available for $120 (ISBN: 1-56592-077-5). In addition, the entire 4.4BSD-Lite distribution is available on CD for $40, and the complete manual set with the CD for $150.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
