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.

How does this compare to the Handbook?

Can someone compare and contrast this book with the FreeBSD handbook that they provide on the site?

FreeBSD handbook is more a "hands on" manual and does not go at the "mechanics" of FreeBSD as Groggy does. The handbook is more a "do this to accomplish that". Groggy puts more flesh to the bones
