Rute vs. Running Linux

Hey I started reading the Rute Linux guide and man is it thorough. I'm just curious if it's better than Running Linux? It seams like no printed book could have as much information as this does.

I assume "Running Linux" is a book? I don't really read books - I just browse the net. I've yet to find info in a book that wasn't on the net. Not to mention the fact that it is searchable.

they're both really good. Rute does seem more detailed, but imo its structure meanders a little. RL is very linear: start to finish, but again doesn't seem as totally thorough as Rute. both are great resources, however, get both if you can.
