As Bill Lubanovic and I were putting the final touches on this book, I overheard a
conversation between two coworkers in our Cisco lab discussing Linux. The senior
networking guru of the two made an interesting remark. He said that despite all his
knowledge, he felt incomplete as a professional because he had never learned Linux.
A moment later he and the other gentleman turned to me and looked me square in
the eyes. I smiled and went on working.
That evening, our director of Information Technology made an offhand remark to
me during a conference that struck me as unusual.
Now an even more versatile learning resource, this edition adds skill objectives at the beginning of each chapter. Sobell assumes no prior Linux knowledge. He starts at the beginning and walks you through every topic and task that matters, using easy-to-understand examples.
This book provides detailed information on installing, using, and administering openSUSE. You’ll learn how to unleash the vast array of software products included in openSUSE so that you can use it as a desktop computer, as a professional workstation, or as a powerful server.
openSUSE Linux Unleashed includes a broad range of coverage: from using software you need everyday—such as email clients, web browsers, and productivity software including the OpenOffice.
