Summary:Into the already crowded Linux desk-reference market (which threatens to push my monitor off my desktop) comes O’Reilly’s third edition of Linux in a Nutshell by Ellen Siever and colleagues. The ever-expanding horizon of Linuxology makes the editorial task of circumscribing it in a nutshell impossible–even from the venerable O’Reilly sources. We ask, “What didn’t they cut, and do we really need it next to the coffee cup?” The success of this attempt is spotty, at best.
