"For some reason, a lot of people seem to be very anti-O'Reilly. I've seen comments ranging from "they barely rank above the 'Dummies' series" to comments about them being a "parasite in open source." I'm not entirely sure what has caused this venom. Maybe I've missed something, but from what I've seen, it certainly seems misdirected."
"Regardless of what a lot of people think of O'Reilly, Linux in a Nutshell is, I believe, considered to be one of the best command references for Linux. Having finally obtained my own copy of the book I can say that it certainly seems to be everything I hoped it would be."
"To begin with, there is the command reference. Now, I am not Linux expert - I can't rattle off a list of every single command in Linux, but the number of commands listed here seems pretty darn comprehensive to me. Every command I've been interested in is listed."
