When you're ready to get to the heart of it all-to the operating system at the core of the Internet, the intranet, and quite possibly your own desktop-there's no better way to start than by consulting with this handyVisual QuickStart Guide. The authors who made Unix comprehensible to the masses are back withUnix, 2nd Edition: Visual QuickStart Guide-completely updated to reflect all that's new in Unix.
