First review of “FreeBSD Mastery: Specialty Filesystems”

Sunday Morning Linux Review episode 184 discusses FreeBSD Mastery: Specialty Filesystems.

While SMLR is always worth listening to, if you want to cut right to the review (or, alternately, if you’re me coming back to look for good quotes to steal for publicity purposes), the review starts about 30 minutes in.

It’s about 1:11 into the unedited video.

Summary: the book does not suck. And some parts are actually interesting. Which is nice. The book did expose Mary to new ideas and sent her running for the manual and Wikipedia a few times, but learning is good for you, so that’s okay.

I should also note that while I offer free review copies to podcasters, SMLR insists on purchasing books for review. They say it keeps them unbiased. I won’t argue.
