TechBookReport on 'SUSE Linux 10 Unleashed'
Like a lot of people, my first introduction to Linux was via a big chunky book with an attached CD. This was in the days when 56k dial-up was as good as it got, and the idea of downloading an ISO was pretty much fantasy. So, the idea of getting a big book and a CD was pretty attractive - in this case a copy of Red Hat 6.0. Now, many years later, does the idea of a big book and CD make any sense? With plenty of bandwidth and countless distributions and support sites, why pay for a something that you can download for free? 'SUSE Linux 10 Unleashed' provides a pretty good answer.
