Response to: will not spend $1 for the book.

The book is for unix geeks. Most are programmers. We like that tone. Why would someone who doesn't know this stuff want a book that dumbs down the terminology?


Notice that the book isn't "Top Ten Mac OS X Tips for People Who Last Used OS 9 and Have No Unix Skills"...

    Have to agree: good writers know the audience they are writing for and target their writing accordingly. Unix geeks invariably know at least shell scripting and just a little about OS weirdness ;-) The book, and this article, is clearly targeted at people who are already Unix geeks: they're not in need of being taught per se, but shown what the differences are.
