I purchased this book hoping to get some Linux deployment ideas... The description was perfect, "Enterprise Linux at Work: How to build 10 Distributed Applications for Your Organization". However, this book is a disgrace. This book has *nothing* to do with Linux, and nothing to do with distributed applications. All the ideas are java web applications such as an online catalog, web based bug tracking, and an XML database backup utility. Why would you need to do *ANY* of those things, are they distributed, and what do they have to do with Linux? The answer is of course: You don't, they aren't, and they've got nothing to do with Linux. There aren't words strong enough to describe how strongly I recommend against this book. I will *never* buy a book published by wiley again.
This book is great for many reasons. It most notable feature is the breadth and depth of the topics - all of which are important in the modern enterprise. The examples have a substantial amount of "meat" which makes them useful as a starting point for other things. Some of the customized solutions can easily substitute for commercial products. Great Book.
