X Window System Series

Why has the X Window System series of books been allowed to languish and get so outdated? When are you going to bring thiese up to date?

  • Why? Because no one seemed to care. Not only was no one buying them any more, but we couldn't even get the X project to adopt them. We offered them all to any project that wanted to keep them up - they are available under an open source license (see http://openbooks.oreilly.com). No takers.

    It's sad but true. There are many great books that no longer have sufficient demand to require updating. For every early O'Reilly classic like Learning vi (now Learning vi and vim) that is still in print, there are dozens that have gone to the great library in the sky.

    Feel free to engage a team around updating the books.
