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 great news. I'd like to thank Mr. Lehey for his contributions in both writing the book and releasing it under Creative Commons. Hopefully veteran users and novices alike will update and put this book to use. Here's to hoping that it helps the BSD community grow.

This is definately one of the most autoritative books on FreeBSD.
Though I have read the book couple of times, now I can even contribute to it.

Thanks Greg, for giving me a chance to share my experiences withh the FreeBSD community.
