About this book

CentOS is just like Red Hat, but without the price tag and with the virtuous license. When belts have to be tightened, we want to read about an OS with all the features of a commercial Linux variety, but without the pain. The Definitive Guide to CentOS is the first definitive reference for CentOS and focuses on CentOS alone, the workhorse Linux distribution, that does the heavy lifting in small and medium-size enterprises without drawing too much attention to itself.

  • Provides tutorial and hands-on learning but is also designed to be used as a reference
  • Bases all examples on real-world tasks that readers are likely to perform
  • Serves up hard-won examples and hints and tips from the author's experiences of CentOS in production
