The UNIX Hater's HandbookIs a topic I have tried to et into from multiple angles via multiple books And Blogs And Generally Only blogs and enerally only most self hating left brained Aspergers kernal hackers likely truly enjoy the topic as it is preserved in most booksReading about Unix through the lens of a disgruntled senior engineer venting about the backwards nature of the OS is by far the best introduction I have had venting about the backwards nature of the OS is by far the best introduction I have had has proven to be the most accessible entry point to the topic that I have yet found My biggest problem with the book is that Unix is out of date not when every Android phone is on Linux and Apple iOS devices are on a variation of FreeBSDI would love for updated books like this to be written using this exact tone and this filled with experienced criticism because it would provide infinitely reater value to most readers professional lives in my opinion This book is a uick read for its length That s because it consists mostly of emails collected from Usenet If you like reading forum and blog style comments about a subject to learn it and forum and blog style comments about a subject to learn it and t mind 15 year old material this is a ood book This book is funny insightful informational and a bit outdatedIt ll put into words all your latent hatred for Linux That s right Linux With Apple s work and 15 years of development very little of this book applies to Mac OS X But Linux might as well be stuck in 1995 with this book The next time a freetard tries to convert you point out everything in this book Very fun book to read full of truth in my opinion I have been in programming world for some time and when I was in college all we were taught was the things that are being described as basically worst ways of thinking about software This is why we have not seen Birth and Fortune: The Impact of Numbers on Personal Welfare good progress in software for a long time other than very few companies made success financiall.
