Hello, Community!

Many people from our generation, including myself and VyOS maintainers and contributors, learned about Linux from books. At the time, there wasn't much else. Now, there's loads and loads of information on the Internet, and experienced admins can easily find what they are looking for in seconds. But for beginners, a book where they can read about all the basics is still a great start.

But what book can we recommend them to read?

Many classic Linux books for beginners are now completely outdated in both senses: they include obsolete information and nothing about newer developments. The books I learned from two decades ago are all of purely historical interest now. In this rapidly evolving technological landscape, beginners must have access to up-to-date resources that provide accurate and relevant information.

Recognizing this need, Packt Publishing took the initiative to invite Daniil Baturin, the VyOS maintainer, to work on a Linux book specifically tailored for beginners. With his extensive knowledge and experience, Daniil has crafted a comprehensive guide that covers all the essential basics of Linux, ensuring that readers are equipped with the most current and relevant information.

The book is finally available after over a year of hard work and dedication. Whether you prefer a paper book's traditional feel or a digital copy's convenience, you can choose what suits you best.
