Aspiring Linux Ninja

Hello All!

I've been working on and off with Linux based systems for about 8 years now but I recently started at a new company that takes open source very seriously. We're a full blown LAMP house (with the 'P' being perl) Previously, all I've had to know were the handful of commands that it took to 'get the job done' but now I'm ready to dive in.

I've had discussions with other engineers regarding a book that describes some of the trade offs surrounding the Linux operating system. From what I understand, it's more of a narrative than a manual. Does anyone know which book i may be talking about.

I look forward to being part of the community!

Welcome to LinuxQuestions. The book that I recommend for you to read is "Running Linux" by OReilly.
