This is an essential desktop reference for the commands that users of Linux utilize every day, with the depth of information and the practical, succinct "In a Nutshell" format that made the previous editions so popular.
Reflecting the rapid and continuous development of the Linux operating system, the reference has been published in 1997, 1999, and again now. Not a tutorial for new users, but a concise handbook of commands (most, but not, for example cdp!), network administration, boot methods, package managers, shells, editors, scripting, version control, and window managers. O'Reilly's series is highly respected in the community by those who recognize what it is and is not. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
