Why I Wrote The Linux Cookbook, Second Edition
FOSS Force, November 12th, 2021
Spoiler alert: 'Most tech authors don't write to make money. We write to share cool stuff.'

Once upon a time, way back in 2003, I had an idea. 'Hey,' I said to myself, 'I should write a Linux book. It will be for Linux users, rather than coders. It will cover the basic tasks that Linux users want to know about.'

I was so enchanted by this idea that I reviewed the notes I had collected during my Linux adventures and started writing an outline. I pitched it to O'Reilly Media, and wonder of wonders, they said yes. The writing process was long and horrible, because I had no idea how to write a book, but my editors were patient and amazing.

Red Hat announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5, the latest version of a leading enterprise Linux platform

Red Hat Enterprise Linux offers a common, open operating system that extends across clouds, traditional datacenter operations and out to the edge. The platform enables IT teams to lean on existing skills while they use new and expanded capabilities to build the transformative applications and services required by their business, regardless of where these workloads may ultimately live.

Recent studies indicate that organizations are realizing that using public cloud exclusively may not be economically feasible for long-term scale. At the same time, Gartner predicts that by 2026, 'public cloud spending will exceed 45% of all enterprise IT spending, up from less than 17% in 2021.'1 Red Hat has long championed a hybrid multicloud world, where customers can make the vision of any application, anywhere, a reality by choosing the right environment and technologies that build on a flexible, more consistent foundation. This makes a common Linux foundation, tailored for the rigors of traditional datacenters as well as the complexities of multicloud and edge computing deployments, a necessity for digital transformation.
