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.

to reading it!!

Ordered it from just the other day!!! ;)

Newbie to FreeBSD, but making great strides (at least, it feels like it).
Chose FreeBSD instead of Linux (no particular reason, just did so), and am now running 4.3 on an old Pentium box.

I have had great benefit from all the documentation available in the handbook as well as other places on the net. Also more general *nix literature.
