Last month was pretty happening. I, in capacity of being leader for Mumbai OpenSolaris User Group (http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/User+Group+mmosug/), spent last month working with the editorial team of Digit Magazine (http://www.thinkdigit.com) to come up with a minibook on OpenSolaris. Even though we got a very little time to finish a massive project like this, but with help of everyone, finally we could finish it in time and on the first day of this month (1/FEB/2010) 100,000 copies of the book- "Fast Track to OpenSolaris", along with a OpenSolaris CD with each copy, hit the newsstands all across the country! It took me 10 days to finish the book and it was the first time that I found myself writing a book of any sort.
Now Fast Track to OpenSolaris is available for download: http://www.scribd.com/doc/26659478/Fast-Track-to-OpenSolaris
Digit and Mumbai OSUG are jointly running a online Quiz competition (OpenSolaris Geek Hunt) at http://www.thinkdigit.com/opensolaris Participate in this quiz to test your OpenSolaris skills and even win a Acer Aspire One Netbook, 1 TB or 500 GB external hard disk and many more OpenSolaris goodies!
I hope you all like the quiz and enjoy the book. Please feel free to drop me a line if you find any errors in the book. Also, please note that I wrote this book as a OpenSolaris community member and not as a Sun Microsystems Inc employee. So all the views and opinion and facts mentioned in this book are essentially mine and Sun should not be held responsible for mistakes and errors, if any! Now go ahead and geek out with OpenSolaris!
