Well well, I am quiet amazed at the emotion that this little
comment stirred. I'll add a few more things.
A. My system guys, who are programmers, started to rely on it, even though they have the camel book.
B. I am not an American, so my English can't be perfect.
C. I wrote it for non programmers mainly. My scripts are made of very few lines
D. Maybe I wasn't articulate enough, but what I meant was that the camel book takes for granted that I
am skilled in UNIX. I am not, so this book can clearly not be suitable for me, right?
That should also clear up something about reasons to prefer one book over the other.
E. You don't need to a programmer in order to be a geek.
F. You don't need to be a geek in order to be a programmer.
G. People, the earth is polluted, terrorists are commiting horrible crimes, so save your
energy for something a little more important than someone's taste in programming books.
