No I mean "FreeBSD: The Complete Reference" by Roderick W. Smith (Paperback - 900 pages (1 January, 2003) Osborne McGraw-Hill; ISBN: 0072224096 http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0072224096/ref=pd_sim_b_dp/026-3210251-3746063) Its only just been published, or thats what amazon say anyway. I think its part of a "The Complete Reference" series. Well, it clearly *is* part of a series of books called "The Complete Reference", so maybe that gives some small basis on which to make a judgement, even tho its so new that its probably not been read by anyone ;)
Really that is the defining factor of my dilemma: do I go for a book thats well established and trusted, but getting a little bit old, or something brand new but untested?
