Book Review: FreeBSD Mastery – Storage Essentials

Book Review: FreeBSD Mastery – Storage Essentials
FreeBSD Mastery: Storage EssentialsI have been a big fan of author, Michael W Lucus for years now. I love his Absolute OpenBSD book and have yet to read one better on OpenBSD. I am also a fan of his book Absolute FreeBSD so was looking forward to reading this. I had high expectations but at the same time really didn’t know what to expect other than I knew I would be able to understand it. I love him as a writer because he truly recognizes the beauty of BSD. His passion for it shows in his writing. I feel like I am the only one with these feelings and then I read one of his books and know I am not alone with this passion for an operating system. His style of writing is always pleasant and I always learn.
For me, I use FreeBSD for a number of reasons. Its stability is a big benefit to those of us who use it for work or at home. It also lets me set it up the way I want it. With FreeBSD if something crashes I have the possibility to understand why it is crashing and how I am going to handle it. If I am lost on how to handle it, this book is a great reference in dealing with disk solutions.
