FreeBSD With more and more people migrating away from Microsoft's platforms, it's increasingly important for alternative operating systems to be well documented in order to attract and maintain new users. FreeBSD is already well documented; its on-line handbook is an extremely well detailed guide to the OS as a whole. But for the user new to FreeBSD, or even Unix as a whole, salvation may come in the form of SAMS' FreeBSD Unleashed by Michael Urban and Brian Tiemann.

You are talking about the online handbook, not about the book we are reviewing. We called the handbook as "extremely well detailed" as compared to the focus of this review: the user. The review is about usability and guidance for the FreeBSD system and what you get from the book or the online handbook, we are not comparing the information that developers need to write drivers and such. ;)
