Linux "What makes GNU/Linux such a pleasure to use is the excellent documentation that is included with it for each and every tool bundled with it. Just try learning to use iptables without reading the documentation even once, and you will get the idea. The documentation in Linux is available in a variety of formats - as man pages, info, HTML pages, postscript and in some cases even pdf. But not many people are aware that you can have additional documentation and even whole books available locally for making your GNU/Linux experience that much richer. Here are a few of them that have come to my notice."

However, nothing prevented people of, for example, FreeBSD community to create excellent man pages and update them periodically, to make a lot of other very useful docs located at /usr/share/doc, /usr/share/examples of FreeBSD installation.
