9780072123555: Linux, Programmer's Reference

The new Linux kernel 2.2 became available earlier this year. The two main distributors of Linux: Red Hat and Caldera Open Systems released their updated distributions of Linux, based on the 2.2 Kernel this Spring. We have a logical opportunity to update this existing Programmer's Reference based on the new kernel 2.2 and maximize sales opportunities
-- Everyone is aware of how popular Linux has become in the past year. There were 12 million Linux users in 1998, 7.5 million users in 1997, and it is estimated that there will be more than 15 million users by the end of 1999. With the increase in popularity, more programmers will need a quick reference where they can look up information based on the latest version of the Linux kernel.
-- We have sold 10,000 units of the first edition of the book since it published in June 1998. Other books in the series such as SQL, HTML, VB6, and C++ have sold an average of 20,000 units each. We are adding over 100 pages to this edition and raising the series price to $19.99. We are launching three revisions for the January/February timeframe: Java, Linux, and SQL.
