“As this book shows, Linux systems are just as functional, secure, and reliable as their proprietary counterparts. Thanks to the ongoing efforts of thousands of Linux developers, Linux is more ready than ever for deployment at the frontlines of the real world. The authors of this book know that terrain well, and I am happy to leave you in their most capable hands.”
–Linus Torvalds
“The most successful sysadmin book of all time–because it works!”
–Rik Farrow, editor of ;login:
“This book clearly explains current technology with the perspective of decades of experience in large-scale system administration. Unique and highly recommended.”
–Jonathan Corbet, cofounder, LWN.net
“Nemeth et al. is the overall winner for Linux administration: it’s intelligent, full of insights, and looks at the implementation of concepts.”
–Peter Salus, editorial director, Matrix.net
