Absolute OpenBSD: UNIX for the Practical paranoid covers a powerful Unix-like operating system which is totally free and open source, relying on user support and The OpenBSD Foundation for its maintenance and revisions. This updated second edition provides users with a complete guide to the operating system and has been completely revised to cover OpenBSD 5.3 and new coverage of its boot system and advanced networking techniques. It's the definitive guidebook on the topic and covers the entire platform, technical details underlying design decisions, and best practices. Any collection strong in Unix or open source alternatives must have this detailed coverage, unique in its genre.
