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.

Thanks Greg, I am just getting into BSD and this is very nice.

This particular CC, Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.5, is completely free restricting the use of money so I can't see how it could be printed in paper format without loosing allot of money in the future.
Yes, I love how it is easier to update the maintain your work more effectively with the CC too.
Buying the book is nice too but for a resource I usually rather have it online because it might be updated more frequently.
