Filed under

The Wiley book, Linux Bible - 2007 Edition, by Christopher Negus, the author of popular book Red Hat Linux Bible, got at least one thing right: it gives the reader an option to select one of many GNU/Linux distributions available today according to his or her requirements/taste.

The necessity of sticking to a distribution just because it happened to come with the a “Red Hat Linux Bible,” “Debian GNU/Linux Bible,” “The Official Ubuntu Book”, “Linux Made Easy” and plenty of other such GNU/Linux books that the user happened to buy in search of a ‘linux book’ is present no more. This book covers the installations of over a dozen GNU/Linux distributions and includes all of those distributions on the DVD & CD that come with the book. The distributions covered by the book include:

1. Fedora Core
2. Debian GNU/Linux
3. openSUSE Linux
4. KNOPPIX
5. Yellow Dog Linux
6. Gentoo Linux
7. Slackware Linux
8. Freespire
9. Mandriva Linux
10. Ubuntu Linux
11. Coyote Linux Firewall
