This is the most useful all-in-one Linux book I've seen. I consider myself an intermediate level Linux/UNIX user. I wish I had obtained this book five or six years ago.Like a previous reviewer, I decided to wait and obtain this when I saw the sixth edition was about to be released. It was worth the wait. I became aware of this book after examining Sobell's "Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming" at a local store. I was impressed with that book's breadth and organization. That book uses generic Linux as the basis for explaining Linux. When I saw offered a Sobell book targeted to Fedora/RHEL, I knew that was the edition I wanted. I recently switched to Fedora Linux after several years of using Ubuntu.If you're in the market for a large Linux book, you'll be happy with either this Fedora book or the "Practical..Commands" edition mentioned previously. Either book will be useful regardless of the Linux flavor you use. The difference between this Fedora book and the "Practical..Commands" book: this one covers administration and server setup tasks extensively. Both books share a lot of material. The "Commands" book also covers many topics that aren't covered here (including Mac OSX). It's worth taking time and reading 's preview which includes the preface. Sobell clearly spells out the differences between the books.The "Commands" book costs less and doesn't include a DVD. But, -- nowadays -- installing Linux from a USB stick is simpler than using a DVD. I suggest to buy the "Practical..Commands" book instead of this Fedora book when you're completely new to Linux. It costs less and covers more of what you don't know. Learn administrative tasks down the road as needed.
