FreeBSD Ten years ago, on 24 February 1996, Greg Lehey submitted for publication the final version of the first ever book on the FreeBSD operating system, "Installing and Using FreeBSD". It was later renamed to "The Complete FreeBSD", as is now known and appreciated by the users of this OS. Grog have always retained full rights to the book, and for today he has decided to release it for download under a Creative Commons license. Besides, he doesn't have the time to keep updating it, so he is asking for help. He can't guarantee money, "just" recognition in the preface.

This is the go to book for FreeBSD, it definitely helped me when I first started. It's outstanding that it's released under a CC license. Now it can be updated to the latest version, and stay up to date. This is going to help alot of people get into FreeBSD.
