Books We Want
This is a page to log community desires about books we'd like to get for our ever-growing library. No Starch Press and O'Reilly have graciously offered to donate books to us. Their booklists can be found at http://www.oreilly.com/pub/q/book_nostarch_title_asc and http://www.oreilly.com/pub/q/book_oreilly_title_asc.
Specific titles and general ideas are welcome.
- Basic Linux books for specific distros
- Debian Distro reference books
- In general I'd suggest "meta" books (e.g. security, networking) over specific books (e.g. Perl, PHP, hacks, cookbooks); so I guess I'm saying more general theory over programming or specific applications. I say this for two reasons. First, the specific books are more likely to change and go out of date quicker. And second, volunteers/staff/etc are more likely to have copies of the specific books themselves whereas they're unlikely to have the general ones since they're not "essential". -- Wren
