Review:

In Linux at Work, Marcus Goncalves provides a somewhat boosterish but generally level-headed statement of what Linux does and how it fits into the modern, network-centric organization. He covers Linux as a foundation for a variety of server software, compares it to Windows NT, and provides a lengthy directory of Linux resources. While not as fine-grained in detail as some of Goncalves's earlier books, it satisfies a need for a good semi-technical manager's book about this operating system.

This book's primary appeal is its detailed treatment of the business case for Linux, written in terms a manager (even one who is fairly ignorant of technical matters) can understand. Goncalves helps the manager figure out which business processes depend upon server operations, and explains exactly what the administrator does to support these operations. It's the sort of stuff a manager needs to know to make educated decisions about computing strategies and budget requests.

About 20 percent of this book is devoted to a list of Linux experts who sell their services as consultants in the United States--a longer list of consultants all over the world appears on the companion CD-ROM. This may prove handy, but you can get the same material (indeed, a more up-to-date version of it) on the Red Hat site. --David Wall
