Familiar Faces

\^ the Indian editions of some very familiar books, on sale at Tech Days 2010 in Hyderabad.

Comments:

'Solaris Performance and Tools' and 'Solaris 10 Security Essentials' are not indian editions. They are imported and are charged in dollars :( I have ben searching for
'Solaris 10 Exam Prep Exam CX-310-202' by Bill Calkins for quite some time and now learned that they dont have an indian edition for that as well :( Why aint many Solaris books available in indian market?

Hi. We very much appreciate the interest in localized editions of Solaris books. Unfortunately, it is something we can not control. The parent publishing company licenses translations to third parties or subsidiaries, depending on the location. It is ultimately up to the 3rd party or subsidiary company to decide to do the translation, based on local markets and whether or not they think it makes business sense. The same holds true for a less expensive english language reprint - it's all up to the local company. The parent company in the U.S. does offer some incentives to get translations or reprints done, but they can not drive the decision.

Thanks again for your interest. I wish I had a better answer for you.

Jim, I agree to what ever you said. But as a person who is fascinated by the whole concept of solaris, id have loved to pwn those books on performance tuning and kernel architecture. Unfortunately may like me cant afford the foreign edition :(
