Pro OpenSolaris eBook now available!

Last month Harry Foxwell, Sun employee and author of Pro OpenSolaris, spoke in Second Life to employees and the public about his new book (access the replay here). Today, I'm pleased to announce that through a 3 month pilot with Springer (Sun employees - go to this internal site for access), we have access to all Apress books including Harry's book, Pro OpenSolaris.

Sun is currently a subscriber of key Springer collections via SpringerLink: Computer Science, Engineering, Math/Statistics. So, all Sun employees, be sure you are leveraging this fantastic learning content today. We are piloting access to Apress content specifically as Springer owns Apress and there is some key content in there that we are not able to get from other services.



For Sun employees, try it out today within SWAN and access all Springer content mentioned above as well as the new Pro OpenSolaris eBook.



If you are not a Sun employee, you can get access to this book in a few places - check Harry's blog for details.

Comments:

This is a great offering. However, I fail to find a way to download the complete book. All I see is links to individual chapters, some of them withe same filename, which makes it cumbersome to download and manage. Right now, this is only a C+ :-(

Hi Stefan - that is correct, you can only download the individual chapters. We have requested Springer to add in a full eBook download in the next release so are hoping that can happen.Thanks for your comments!
