In the true spirit of Linux, there is a slightly different approach to support than the commercial norm. After all, Linux represents an unparalleled community of experts, it includes industry leading problem determination tools, and of course, the product itself includes the source code. These resources are in addition to the professional Linux support services that are available from companies, such as IBM, and the various Linux vendors, such as Redhat and SUSE. Making the most of these additional resources is called "self-service" and is the main topic covered by this book.

In responding to a reader's questions, Abe writes:"I think you made a good choice by starting with OpenSuse 10. Six years ago, I started using Red Hat Linux then I tried Suse. Today, Suse is still my main distro (distribution). It is complete good desktop/server that has everything and anything you can think of and available as part of FOSS (Free Open Source Software)."

"The open source database market is immature compared to the market for proprietary products from the likes of Oracle and IBM," Andrews said. "We haven't had that test of time where you can really measure which is more secure. But there's no question that we're seeing an appetite for open source."
[Ed: Perhaps Andrews should take a course in if it's been unbroken for ten years in a majority of web sites on the Internet, maybe it works.]
