"I started working with Linux in 1991 -- I guess that makes me a real Linux dinosaur! Back then Linux was very small (you could install a complete system from a couple of floppy disks) and didn't have many features -- no networking, no graphics, very little hardware support. Still, it held a lot of promise, and did almost everything right. Back then, nobody imagined that Linux would be as popular and powerful as it is today. It was just a pet project of a handful of developers on the Internet, and while some of us had big aspirations, the whole media blitz of last summer kind of took everyone by surprise," says Matt Welsh, co-author of the just-released third edition of Running Linux."

"Running Linux, Third Edition explains everything you need to understand, install, and start using the Linux operating system."
