[REVIEW]: [REVIEW] "Linux in a Nutshell"
Sorry everybody, but I just _have_ to join the shameless plugging,
as I too am very enthousiastic about this book.

But I think it _is_.
Sorry to waste bandwith on a not-strictly-Debian subject, but this book
answers a lot of not-strictly-Debian questions on the list. If more people
read it, there would be less not-strictly-Debian questions and hopefully
more answers in general.
I think that if you're a beginner to Linux and you installed it for keeps,
it is a very good idea to get this book.

Well, dpkg(8) is missing, but that's actually not a toll: everytime it gets upgraded
you have to print the manpage yourself and fold it into the book. :-)
